Residents are gathering in front of the Machine Shop today to celebrate Indigenous culture as part of the Truth and Reconciliation weekend festivities.
Indigenous Tourism Ontario has put together a vendor show, which features a wide variety of Indigenous-related goods, items, and services. Kids activities, live music, food and refreshments are also available on-site.
Colleen Nolan, the communications specialist with Indigenous Tourism Ontario, is thrilled with how the event is going, and she encourages the public to get out while they still can.
“It’s been an absolutely wonderful weekend,” she says. “The turnout has been fantastic. There’s a lot of spirit, a lot of culture, and a lot of pride in all of us; that’s what we’re here to celebrate.”
The celebration in front of the Machine Shop will conclude at 9 p.m. this evening.
