Sunday’s launch featured entertainment, workshops and plenty of international cuisine

Mission’s artistic and cultural community was in the spotlight on Sunday afternoon as the official launch to Culture days in BC took place at the Clarke Theatre.

A large crowd gathered to watch cultural dancers, sample international cuisine and participate in series of workshops and other activities.

BC Culture Days is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and Mission was chosen as the host of the official provincial launch.

The event was called Mission: A Mosaic of Cultures and it did not disappoint as Mission lived up to its reputation for creating an amazing experience.

Culture Days itself will take place this weekend, Sept, 27-29 with more than 45 events in Mission.
