John Barnes, New Italy president, announced today that, ”regrettably, this year’s Carnevale Italiano , scheduled for Sunday April 9th, has had to be cancelled because of the impact of the devastating flood in Lismore and the surrounding district.”

“ The site at New Italy  did recover from the earlier rain period, and might have been dry enough for  next Sunday’s Carnevale,” Mr Barnes went on to say.

“But many of the wonderful volunteers who would have worked at this year’s Carnevale have been directly affected by the flood and now cannot help out with our event, which is completely understandable”

“We have had a lot of interest this year from the public, but we are hoping to put on another celebratory event perhaps later  in the year”
