Saturday, May 28, 2011: 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

To kick off this year's annual Carassauga Festival, Square One Shopping Centre (100 City Centre Drive, Mississauga - View Map) will host a multicultural parade featuring over 100 participants from over 60 countries on Saturday, May 28, 2011 in Centre Court.

Talented dancers celebrating their proud heritage and ethnicity from India to the Philippines to Germany - and more - will be performing. This is a wonderful opportunity for visitors to preview the colorful costumes, festive music and joyful dance from countries around the world.

11:00 am - Parade goes through shopping centre starting at Centre Court.

12:00 - 12:15 pm - Parade ends in Centre Court. National Anthem: 'Oh Canada' and Opening Announcements with Dignitaries.

12:30 - 2:00 pm - Festivities continue with inspiring cultural performances from various countries participating in Carassauga Festival.

"Carassauga is an excellent example of how the many cultural groups in Mississauga co-exist peacefully together. This festival helps to strengthen relationships and allows us to better understand our friends and neighbours." ~ Mayor Hazel McCallion.

"Carassauga is an incorporated non-profit volunteer community organization, celebrating its 26th Anniversary in 2011. It operated for the first time in 1986 with 10 pavilions. The Festival was developed in response to a challenge put out by Mayor Hazel McCallion to all ethno cultural groups at a meeting of her calling in the old City Hall in the fall of 1985. The Festival has evolved to become an important annual event for Mississauga and surrounding areas with its popularity steadily increasing in recent years. Carassauga Festival ranks today as Mississauga's largest cultural festival, its largest indoor festival, and its second longest running community festival. It is the largest multicultural Festival in Ontario and has been voted by Festivals & Events Ontario as one of the Top 100 Festivals in Ontario." ~ Info from Carassauga.

Celebrate Dad, apple pie and the grill next door.

This Father's Day, Sunrise of Mississauga will be firing up the grill and preparing a feast fit for a Dad and the entire family, to benefit the Canadian Diabetes Association.

Dad eats for free, and you'll eat for $12.00 and support a good cause. Join Sunrise in the fight to stop diabetes.

It's all part of our Taste of Sunrise series that celebrates family, friends, food and living life to the fullest.
