Annual YRP multicultural fair a celebration of cultures

York Region Police’s annual multicultural festival again took over Crystal Fountain on April 14 for what was a celebration of culture and music from around the world.

Commemorating the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, the event saw a steady stream of performers, including a multicultural Irish dance group, indigenous performers, a Sri Lankan Dance team, Taiwanese drummers and some up-tempo blues and soul among others.

The event theme this year was Sharing Our Similarities While Celebrating Our Differences.

The dozens of booths of cultural, faith, social service and educational groups saw enthusiastic crowds roaming the aisles in a feel-good environment.
