Francophones celebrate language, cuisine, and culture

THUNDER BAY – Francophones living in Northwestern Ontario want everyone to know that they exist, and there’s no better way to be known than dancing and singing in the street.

More than 400 people braved the wet weather to participate in the Franco Festival on Sunday. The day included authentic French-Canadian cuisine and music, arts and crafts, and information on Francophone culture and history in the Northwest.
