Heritage Festivals making a big splash

Heritage Festivals making a big splash

August 13, 2019

It’s been a busy summer, with not one but two cultural heritage festivals at Swangard Stadium over the last few weeks – both with proceeds supporting Burnaby Hospital Foundation!

On July 28th, the Canadian Community Services Association (CCSA) presented the Chinese Cultural Heritage Festival and Water Splashing Festival. It was a spectacular display of arts and culture, as well as speeches and presentations from numerous local elected officials and dignitaries. 

Not to be outdone, the Philippine Cultural Heritage Society held its own festival on August 11th, concluding a whole weekend of celebration that also included the Tela Fashion Show and beauty pageant. 

Visit back soon for an update on how much both events raised in support of Burnaby Hospital Foundation!
