Some times it pays not to ask too many questions and just enjoy the moment. If I was to ask a question, it would be this. Exactly what do giant elephants, the Gruffalo and koalas have the do with multiculturalism? My guess is not a lot, at least not on the face of it. But enlightenment, that I understand. Bringing the community together of a very chilly winter evening, that I get. Celebrating diversity and people no matter where they come from, that seems totally to be endorsed. Large crowds of families, joined school groups and workers from the city at South Bank tonight for the LUMINOUS Lantern Parade, an annual event to welcome Queenslanders, no matter where they come from. So if illuminated elephants don't by themselves make sense, the smiles on the faces of the children totally do. And if they take home some of that joy and a sense of belonging, mission accomplished.
