Mr. Speaker, this week, in my home riding of Oshawa, we are celebrating the 39th annual Fiesta Week.
Over the past 39 years, Fiesta Week has been, and continues to be, one of the most popular summer events in Oshawa for people of all ages. It is a colourful celebration of the cultural diversity of Durham region and the city of Oshawa.
Fiesta Week allows Durham and Oshawa residents to experience European, Asian, and Caribbean cultures. Not only is it a great opportunity to experience these cultures, but it is also an opportunity to taste the wonderful cuisines from these regions. That is my favourite part.
This Sunday is the kick-off for Fiesta Week and the festivities will start with a parade.
Each year Fiesta Week continues to be an inspiring celebration of the cultural diversity of Oshawa.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers and the Oshawa Folk Arts Council for making this wonderful celebration possible.
I invite everyone to come and enjoy the fun and festivities.
