The Bangladesh Heritage and Ethnic Society of Alberta (BHESA) invites the people of the Bangladeshi community to spend the Saturday, August 16 out in Devon. We will host a children's festival for the whole family, with sportive activities and artistic competitions, games, ethnic food and lots of fun.

We will have a program guiding through day, and will reward prizes and certificates to the participating children of various competitions.
