On Sunday, June 25, the Cuban Consulate together with other Latin American consulates accredited in Toronto (Argentina, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Chile, Uruguay and Mexico) exhibited part of their roots at the Latin Fair of Toronto to highlight the Hispanic heritage and cultural diversity in Canada.
The occasion was propitious for the attendees to enjoy a little piece of Cuba with the joy that characterizes Cubans and in which there was no shortage of good Cuban music and dominoes. For the first time, two young Cuban singers participated in the event, and had the audience dancing.
In addition, Cuban professor José Ángel Carret gave salsa classes, which ended in a dance competition, and Cuba was promoted as a safe tourist destination. Also, the attendees had the opportunity to see an exhibit on José Martí.
The Juan Gualberto Gómez Association of Cuban Residents along with some members of the solidarity groups and friends of Cuba accompanied and supported at all times the representation of the Consulate at the Fair.
Other consulates accredited in Toronto also attended the event as guests at the Cuban stand.
Cuba participated in the Toronto Latin Fair and made itself feltstrongly, spreading its joy to many of the attendees who joined in the dancing and the initiatives of Cubans united with their flag, many of whom wrote beautiful messages to our country. Oscar Vigil, executive director of the Hispanic Canadian Heritage Council (HCHC) and coordinator of the Fair, once again highlighted the extraordinary work and outreach of the Cuban representation.
