Victorian government says Moomba has NOT been cancelled, as claimed
The Victorian government says Moomba has NOT been cancelled, despite an announcement from the Lord Mayor on Thursday that it wouldn’t go ahead for the first time in its history due to COVID-19.
Major Events Minister Martin Pakula told Neil Mitchell the festival could still go ahead next month in a “COVID-safe” manner.
“I think there was just a bit of a communications mix-up, frankly, at Town Hall,” Pakula said.
“But that’s OK.
“These things happen and everybody is working in a pretty high pressure environment, at the moment, and there is a lot going on, so I’m not precious about that but I’m sure that if there’d been a conversation with me first then it may have gone slightly differently and hopefully it still can.”
