Franco-Festival proves to be strong attraction

Despite the rain, some Thunder Bay residents took the chance to get to know the Centre Francophone and the opportunities it provides to those fluent in Canada’s two official languages.

Parts of Van Norman Street from Court to Cumberland streets were closed off on Sunday, the final day of the Franco-Festival.

The three-day event, which started on Friday, ended off with a variety of activities from painting inside the Francophone Centre to various booths out on the street.
