Our MCSS team enjoyed participating in MissionFest in downtown Mission this year, not only as a participant but as a recruiter and organizer for the 30 community groups involved in the Celebration of Community.
We captured a few images to share the spirit of MissionFest.
Thank you to the Mission Downtown Business Association and event organizers for putting on a summer event that drew huge crowds and familiarized many people with what is available in the community's downtown core.
