Folklorama 2010 — So Many Pavilions, So Little Time

Folklorama 2010 — So Many Pavilions, So Little Time

The largest multicultural extravaganza in the world known as Folklorama began its 41st year on Sunday night.

This year there are three new pavilions added to the mix, including the Ethiopian Pavilion, the Sudanese Pavilion and the DOTC First Nations Pavilion.

ChrisD.ca will be out and about at different pavilions every night and will bring you photos and/or video highlights.
