RIVERBOAT DAYS will have a new event this year as a games from around the world day is being organized to showcase some multicultural fun and promote interactions between the ages.

The free event will host a variety of multicultural games set up as stations, and will run from 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. in the parking lot of the Terrace Co-op Aug. 3.

Joice Qualizza is one of the organizers from the Skeena Diversity Society, and says that games can get lost over time, so it is important for elders to pass on cultural knowledge to a younger generation.

Qualizza, who plans to teach East Indian skipping at the event, explains that the plan is to have representation at the event from all of the inhabited continents.

She explains this will be a great chance for people in Terrace to meet each other and maybe make a few new friends.

The event is being organized by the Skeena Diversity Society, Intergenerational Connections and the George Little House.

Organizers are looking for more volunteers to come out and showcase a game from their culture. Those interested can contact the diversity society.
