The West End Cultural Festival is taking place Saturday August 8th over at Gordon Neighbourhood House. Back in 2007 Keira and I went to the West End Block Party and had a really fun afternoon of exploring, playing games, eating snacks, and checking out garage sales. This year the community celebration is expanding.
The event for all ages will include a youth corner, childrens carnival, and seniors corner. The goal will be to gather the multi-ethnic population of the community and engage them in a cultural celebration alongside some of BC’s best athletes. The 2010 Olympic mascots will be around as well as activities to entertain and share the spirit of the Games. Festivities begin at 11:00am and will run until 3:00pm.
Gordon Neighbourhood House also organizes monthly multicutural lunches with food and community members from around the globe. The House is a non-profit, community service organization.
