Time to think outside the box and build something wonderful that ALL of Surrey residents can feel good about!
Holland Park in Downtown Surrey is home to the Fusion Festival, a popular annual event that thousands of families enjoy every year. Always a wonderful opportunity to showcase our city's amazingly diverse cultures and nationalities.
Last summer we attended with 3 kids from Mexico who said the best thing by far was the delicious food! They enjoyed the chicken satay with peanut sauce so much that I had to make my version of it for dinner later that evening! Got everybody talking about how great it would be for Surrey and in particular Downtown Newton to showcase our multi-culturalism for more than just a few weekends a year. Newton has the largest population in Surrey many of whom are immigrants bringing with them their own unique gifts and artistic skills.
Wouldn't it be great to see Downtown Newton transformed into an International Village? Imagine the food! We'd love to see a farmer's market that caters to everyone's cultural heritage.
Bringing cultures together is what builds a strong community and contributes to
healthy, safe and vibrant neighbourhoods.
