The AngloGold Ashanti St Barbara`s Festival is back for the City of Kalgoorlie Boulder this weekend. St Barbara is the Patron Saint of Mining and across the Festival recognition is paid to her and the miners who have never come home from shift. This begins with the Miners Memorial on Thursday November 30 from 6:30 in St Barbara`s Square.
The Parade on Sunday December 3 is where the big trucks, families and lollies come out. Its a celebration of mining and for many families they struggle to get close to where Mum or Dad work. This festival gives the community the chance to see up close the big trucks and machinery on mine sites and underground around the Goldfields.
Parade Starts at 3pm
