TERRACE MIGHT be a small community, yet its heart is large and powerful, as evident by the joyous faces and beaming smiles of the participants who attended the 27th annual Terrace and District Multicultural Potluck Dinner.

This year’s event created very fond memories for the planning committee,  volunteers, entertainers and attendees.

The Terrace and District Multicultural Association (TDMA), paired with the Cultural Advisory Committee of Skeena Diversity, created a symphony of colour, pairing it with the exotic smells of south east Asian culture as the ever-growing,  passionate Bollywood film industry inspired this year’s theme.

As always, the event had great food, and the community really came together in a powerful effort to showcase various cultural entertainment.

The colourful and powerful Men’s Bhangra Club performed a medley of bhangra rhythms and their passion certainly entertained everyone.

The Philippine community played powerful drumming beats, pairing them with graceful folkloric dances.

For the first time, the Panamanian community showcased its music, featuring Rosaura Diaz, who performed beautiful Panamanian numbers that brought that zest of Latin rhythm and the big finale came from the Bollywood number that got people up and dancing enthusiastically.

Participants greatly praised the event and the planning committee thanks everyone for making this year’s dinner another great community success.

The passion keeps growing for multicultural events in the community and the TDMA is honoured to host and create new venues of cultural diversity and expression that so many look forward to participating in every year.

Thank you Terrace.
