In pictures: Opening night for the Westman Multicultural Festival

Posted by Adam in Entertainment, 1/24, 12:21 AM

The Westman Multicultural Festival kicked off on Thursday night with five of the event's ten pavilions showcasing some of the great diverse food and culture that make up our city.

I took the opportunity to pop into each of the five over the course of the night- Mexico, Ukraine, India, Metis and new kid on the block El Salvador- and have included a handful of pics in a gallery below to give a sampling of some of the entertainment and eats that are scattered at locations around the city.

The festival goes into full gear on Friday and Saturday where Thursday's pavilions will be joined by English, Jamaican, Scottish, Mauritian and Philippine for a full compliment of ten. For more details on each including locations, schedules and menus please check out http://www.gotothepavilions.com
