MORE than 280 people participated in a youth disco as part of NAIDOC week celebrations on Thursday.
The event, held at The Zone, was put on by the Bendigo and District Aboriginal Co-operative.
Organiser Jaydene Burzacott said the event was enjoyed by all who attended.
"Everyone really enjoyed themselves," she said.
"We received a lot of good feedback.
"It was a chance for the community to come together and celebrate culture and closing of the gap."
Ms Burzacott said she wanted to thank Bendigo police, the Sheriff's Office, The Zone, the Bendigo NAIDOC Committee and the Department of Justice.
NAIDOC week, which stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee, is held each July to celebrate Aboriginal culture.
It was marked by several events across central Victoria.
