The Smithers Multicultural Society’s mission is to celebrate and promote the diversity of Smithers and surrounding communities through multicultural arts, music, dance, and sports activities.
Their purpose is to promote harmony and mutual respect and recognize that we are all different but equal; to celebrate the heritage of our community and its neighbours showing that there are no boundaries when it comes to arts, music, dance, and sports.
On September 12, the Society held an event in Bovill Square featuring breads and desserts from around the world. It featured many different foods from Scotland, Syria, India, and Scandanavia to try and enjoy.
Several participants were dressed in traditional clothing and music from other lands filled the air.
