August 1 is Heritage Day. The Southern Alberta Ethnic Association is hosting a fun event for all to take part in. With the pandemic the past few years, a Heritage Day event has not been held but it will move forward this year with lots of vendors and fun for the entire family. An official with the association says this event will be an opportunity for many to learn about different heritage types.
“It allows people to celebrate all together our differences and similarities. We had an overwhelming number of applications for performers this year so that’s really exciting. People are really really excited to get back at it,” said Anastasia Sereda, Coordinator for the Southern Alberta Ethnic Association.
The event on Monday kicks off at 11 a.m., till 4 p.m., at the Multicultural Centre.
