Esterhazy Community Museum Celebrates “Culture Days” Canada 150

Submitted by Dianne Kirby (President Esterhazy Community Museum)

The day may have been cool and damp, but many hardy representatives of Filipino culture, Polish ancestry, German roots, Finnish background, Hungarian ethnicity and Czech culture came out for a morning of celebration. The Historical park area was alive with the host cultures sharing ethnic food, costumes, music, language, artifacts, history, stories, maps, flags, and dolls. It was a morning of festivity.

As we wind down the Friday Farmer’s Market, alongside Canada 150, the blending of recent ethnic cultures with traditional pioneer ways breathes life and excitement into the community of Esterhazy to create a truly diverse Multicultural awakening.
