The Humboldt Regional Newcomers Centre was host to a “Multicultural Canada Day” at Water Ridge Park on July 1, 2022. The event recieved great praise and success. 

Eilish McAnally, with the Newcomers Centre, was happy with the outcome.

“It was really great, there were probably around 800 people throughout the day. The food was great, entertainment was absolutely fantastic, it was awesome.”

The community response has been overwhelmingly positive, explained McAnally. 

“We have had nothing by people expressing positive comments. They really enjoyed it and hope it can happen next year.”

The hopes are to bring the event back next year, as it's a great way to bring the diverse community of Humboldt together, explained McAnally. 

The event was a massive success, bringing Humboldt together on Canada Day to celebrate the multiculturalism and diversity of this country.
