Ghanaians in Toronto meet and share in the 'spirit of summer'

During summer time in Toronto-Canada, many people go to the parks and other recreational centres to have fun since the extreme cold weather conditions in the winter season has given way to hot weather conditions.

People from all walks of life, religion, tradition and culture pitch tents at various picnic parks in Toronto-Canada and elsewhere in the province of Ontario or any part of Canada they deem fit and have fun with families, friends and colleague workers, church members as well as mingle with members from different races.

In having fun, they cook, eat and drink soft drinks as well as dance to music and play all sorts of games to entertain themselves, tell stories of their past experience, act scenes to create funny moments from morning through noon till sunset before returning to their various homes.

Apart from the funny aspects, fellowships, societies and associations use the occasion to drum home their groups' objectives and reach out to other members in the community to join them in fighting the good course of their groups.

On August 5, 2018, Ghanaians resident in Greater Toronto Area thronged the Molton picnic park to have fun and the organizers of the barbecue were Tafo Resident Association in Toronto, Brong Ahafo Residents Association in Toronto and Ga-Dangbe Association of Toronto.
