And Marysville is coming back with a bang, with the 1st Australian Steelband Festival (www.ozpans.com) being held on the weekend of 13-14 April 2013. After the 2009 fires, a group of Marysville survivors got together with others from the Triangle District to form the first of three steel pan bands, as part of the recovery process. With over 60 players now in the region, the Steelband Festival weekend is the culmination of this long recovery process. Come along and celebrate this with us, enjoy the beauty of a Marysville autumn and listen to the magic sounds of over 120 steel pans from around Australia and overseas.
Marysville is on the way back (2013). Some stunning new buildings, with plenty of the old charm. Importantly, still the same warm welcome! o)
