Caravan TV and the Afghan Association of B.C. held the second annual celebration of Afghan culture on Sunday at Burnaby's Confederation Park. The event featured a fashion show, Afghan food, live music and a national Afghan dance.
One of the festival organizers, Abdul-Rahim Ahmad Parwani, said the event is to showcase Afghan culture and dispel myths about the country. "The main important thing is we are trying to show the real face of Afghanistan's culture to Canadian society, to other communities," he said.
