Bronte Creek Provincial Park Hosts Halton Multicultural Picnic

For the sixth year, Bronte Creek welcomed over 1000 visitors in celebration of multiculturalism in Halton Region. Dignitaries representing Oakville, Burlington and the Region of Halton greeted the picnickers, who represented immigrants from over 100 different countries.

Everyone enjoyed the amateur cultural singers and dancers who kept the crowd entertained throughout the day. For many, this was their first visit to the park.

The Halton Multicultural Council organized a series of community booths and activity areas which informed and entertained the visitors. Young visitors could try their hand at Korean games and make crafts from Japan. The Burlington Public Library invited visitors to handle and use implements that early settlers worked with over 100 years ago.

Tractor drawn wagon rides allowed picnickers to see other areas of the park including the outdoor 1.8 acre swimming pool, turn-of-the century heritage farm and park walking trails.
