Alberta Culture Days is this weekend, and the Multicultural Association has lined up some special events for Friday and Saturday.
Friday (September 30) will be a day full of learning about other cultures. There will be cultural workshops at various schools in town, where people can learn about many cultures including First Nations, Métis, Inuit, etc. The event will also include fun, interactive workshops like African drumming and Japanese calligraphy.
The fun will continue on Saturday with a look into Fort Saskatchewan's history. From 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., people can gather at the Pioneer House as the Multicultural Association takes you on a musical journey through time. Citizens will have a chance to see how Fort Saskatchewan was built, and the role each culture played in its development.
The day will be filled with exciting live entertainment including storytelling in the teepee, powwow drums and story, a live demonstration from the RCMP, Les Bucherons Ardrossan Yatran, and Misty Country Band and Square Dance. Author Rita Makkanaw will also be there with her books for sale.
Admission is free, along with a complementary hot dog and pop.
