Two Sundays ago, where were you? We were at the Viet Summer Fest 2016 hosted by Minh Chau Productions at Mississauga’s Celebration Square! Nothing signifies summer like sunshine and heat and despite the blazing, scorching sun, hundreds of people gathered for the event. There were lots of delicious Vietnamese food being sold, families and groups of friends chatting and strolling around, and live music performances by singers and emceed by MC Viet Thao.

People gathered at the stage for the live performance.

Most people were ducking in the shade, but some brave souls gathered in the field.

Did you drop by to say hi? We has the pleasure of meeting and conversing with readers who stopped by to pick up some recent copies of our magazine that we were giving out for free – most notably the newest September issue that was only four days old. We were out of magazines in three hours!

Behold! Our cozy, little booth.

Our colorful Spin-to-Win wheel attracted many people passing by.

We did a great job wrapping the prizes if I do say so myself.
