A local singing group, Nous Chantons, is inviting the public to an event on June 24 at the Parksville Community Park picnic shelter.
It will take place at the shelter between the playground and the highway from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
“Our French singing group will be celebrating first the summer solstice by singing a First Nation Iroquois song from Québec. We will sing old French folk songs to celebrate the St-Jean-Baptiste, the patron of all French Canadians,” read a release from organizers.
The President of the AFN (Association francophone de Nanaimo) and a member of the executive will be present at the event, which will honour French culture in Canada.
Attendees are asked to bring a lawn chair and water, with a maximum of 50 people being allowed at the outdoor event, which will happen rain or shine. People are asked to physical distance.
