Egypt builds Middle East's largest cathedral
MISSISSAUGA, July 14 (MENA) - Egyptian Ambassador to Canada Ahmed Abu Zied hailed the Egyptian Coptic Festival that takes place in the Canadian city of Mississauga, saying it is a proof of Egyptian community's ability to celebrate Egypt's culture and civilization.
"The second edition of the festival succeeded in winning further popularity and influence across the outskirts of Toronto where the Egyptian community heavily intensifies," the ambassador said in statements to MENA.
The Egyptian Coptic Festival is a cultural event that celebrates Egyptian Culture, history and arts in the public square for the purpose of creating awareness about Coptic Canadians, their heritage and role in society.
The event brings some 10,000 people together from within and from outside the Coptic community in Canada for family fun, music, shows, documentaries, kids activities and traditional food.
