GALLERY: Crowd gathers to celebrate Indigenous Day in St. Paul

Dancers, singers, drummers, and others were joined by a large crowd at the Lions Park in honour of Indigenous Peoples Day, June 21.

ST. PAUL - A large crowd gathered at the Lions Park along St. Paul's main street on June 21 to celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day. 

Serving up free hamburgers on bannock, organizers had to resort to serving hamburgers on regular buns due to the impressive turnout. 

The event started with a Walk for Friendship that made its way from the UFO landing pad to Lions Park. Then, the other festivities got underway, which included dancing, music and food. 

Hosting the event was the Mannawanis Native Friendship Centre, along with a number of supporters and sponsors.
