People from Ukraine were among the first to come and settle in Canada. And on Saturday, Regina’s Ukrainian community celebrated its heritage with the Ukrainian Festival in downtown Regina.
Holly Paluck is the chair of the festival committee. “Our celebration and our strong sense of being tied to our past, our ancestry of where we have come, it is such a vibrant part of many of our lives. And not is only about celebrating ourselves but we are so excited that so many people remain interested in cultural events.”
Dancers, singers, artisans, and food vendors showcase their authentic Ukrainian talents from morning until night when they celebrate zabava, a traditional feast to celebrate harvest.
