Windsor’s Cultural Diversity Celebrated At Windsor Express Game With Multicultural Council of Windsor and Essex County (MCC)
On Saturday, February 20th the Multicultural Council of Windsor and Essex County (MCC) hosted Multicultural Night during the Windsor Express basketball game held at the WFCU Centre. The evening was dedicated to the celebration of Windsor’s diverse community.
A vibrant game opening included a flag parade from countries around the world where flag bearers dressed in their national costumes demonstrated the very rich culture we have here in our community. Half time was an opportunity for various ethno cultural groups to perform dances in their colorful costumes. This year the dance groups included: Nepali “Delightful Dancers”, Chinese Spring Poem Dance, Serbian “Opanak” Dance Ensemble and Scottish Hart School of Highland Dance group.
This was the second year that the MCC had partnered with Windsor Express in organizing the Multicultural Night and look forward to continuing this tradition promoting and sharing the diverse cultural heritage in Windsor Essex.
