Edmonton City Hall
This place makes me feel such a strong sense of belonging with no cost. I never have a dull moment at the events that go on here. For example ; Canada Day at City Hall makes me feel so proud of my nation, and all the people that gather here on Remembrance Day to honour those who served for our country brings joy to my eyes. Also, i never fail to attend the New Years Eve Celebration, which has fireworks, activities, music and more. Everything i love.
Furthermore, Edmonton City Hall portrays Multiculturalism with celebrations for cultural backgrounds.
For example Cariwest, for Caribbeans to celebrate. I get to know a lot about their culture, and dance until my feet fall off. Furthermore, the Celebrating Our Faith event that goes on to celebrate the incredible diversity of faith traditions in Edmonton,like Buddhist,Christian,Muslim and more.
Edmonton City Hall is just one of the places that i go to feel a sense of belonging, and to get inspired. However, there's many more. I've visited a few other locations in Canada that have given me this exact same feeling. Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto, Banff National Park, The Legislature, etc. These places make me so proud to live in Canada. It's amazing how i feel so connected, even i'm not in my own city\province. It surely proves that everywhere i go in Canada, i can call it home. I'm so proud to be a Canadain, and thankful for the country i live in.
