NV Multi Cultural Day

Today is Nicola Valley Multi-Cultural day, and the Nicola Tribal Association is hosting a free celebration all day long at the civic centre.

The celebration is set to run from 10am to 7pm. Richard Wimbush spoke to Q101 about what those who attend can expect.

“We have all-day entertainment, starting off the morning with some powwow dancing and some drummers. Moving into the afternoon and evening with some live performances from some local artists, musicians, open mic,” said Wimbush.

Some of the food caterers on site will include Mary’s, Jaki Joes, and Kekuli.

Along with the delicious food, dances and art displays, there will be some workshops.

“We have some free workshops, beading, cedar bark weaving,” said Wimbush.

Other activities will include basket making, food preparation, crocheting, painting and arts and crafts.

While the party will run all day, there is a little extra incentive to be there around 6pm.

“We have door prizes, but they’re not being handed out all day you have to be there at six o’clock to get a door prize,” said Wimbush.

The community should come and be prepared to be fully immersed in a cultural experience.

Q101 will also be on-location at the civic centre from 10-2, so make sure you stop by and say hi.
