Welcome to the 10th Annual Welcome BBQ
Date: Sunday, August 30, 2015
Free family event with enterainment, games, food and music! Free BBQ while supplies last. Bringing newcomers and current residents together to build relationships and make connections.
In 2014, Approximately 1500 newcomers and current residents enjoyed the Annual Welcome BBQ on the South Commons. Everyone had an amazing time laughing, eating great food, and listening to invigorating music.
A sample of the fare at this free, family event was hotdogs, fresh corn, sweet potato, and cake, all served by volunteers!
Enthusiastic residents enjoyed the sights and sounds of cultural music and dancing from Samba Nova and a Nepali singing and dancing group. Everyone had a chance to get in on the action with Zumba dancing. There was also plenty to do for the kids such as face painting, soccer, badminton, parachute games and free books!
Steeler, the dog from the Halifax Regional Police Canine Unit and their officers paid us a visit and showed us their moves.
The Welcome BBQ is planned and delivered each year by a committee representing many organizations that serve newcomers in our region.
