In mid-July, Surrey held Fusion Festival again which brought together all different cultures from around the world to share entertainment and food. This is a staple event for the City of Surrey, and in 2010 the event won the prestigious Star Award for “Best Cultural Event in Canada”. This year’s event was larger than ever, and I had the oppertunity to cover Surrey’s Mayor, Dianne Watts, as she went through all the different pavillions and met with all the participants. Check out the video below.
I also got the chance to meet Warren Dean Flandez who is a young break-out star who just released his first album titled “Vintage Love”. His performance at Fusion was amazing, and I’ll be posting up some photos from it soon!
“We’re very proud to have earned a National Award and recognition for this important event that showcases and celebrates diversity in the City,” said City of Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts. “The Fusion Festival grows in popularity year after year and has broad-based community participation from multiple intercultural partners and associations.” – City of Surrey Website
