Cabramatta police have praised the behaviour of the almost 90,000 people that attended the Cabramatta Moon Festival on Sunday.
Police from Cabramatta Local Area Command were assisted by officers from Police Transport Command, Traffic and Highway Patrol Command and the South West Metropolitan Region Enforcement Squad to maintain a highly-visible presence and ensure community safety. They also had a crime prevention stall where festival goers could pick up brochures on general safety and have a friendly chat.
“This event always attracts a large crowd and we are once again pleased with the behaviour of all those who attended,” Cabramatta Local Area Commander, Superintendent Wayne Murray said.
“It was good to see the majority of the crowd focus was on celebrating the festival to unite the community and not on criminal or anti-social behaviour.” Superintendent Murray said police worked closely with event organisers, Fairfield Council, to ensure the festival was safe and fun for all who attended.
“This festival provides an opportunity for all communities within Cabramatta to share their cultures and celebrate their diversity,” he said.
“It is also a great way to celebrate life in Australia by combining elements of different traditional cultures.”
