On Sunday, the vibrant community from across Brampton and the GTA came together at Lougheed Park for an afternoon of connection, food, and celebration during the highly anticipated Annual Community Barbeque hosted by Member of Parliament, Sonia Sidhu.
Residents enjoyed delicious food, refreshing beverages, and a variety of activities for all age groups. From face painting and balloon animals for the kids, to live music and engaging discussions for the adults, the event truly had something for everyone. Bike Brampton had a booth to spread awareness about active living and provide on-site bicycle tuning. Music For Every Child, a local music therapy not-for-profit organization, not only engaged the crowd with their informative booth but also with their live performances.
MP Sidhu expressed her heartfelt gratitude for the community’s continuous support and emphasized the significance of these kinds of gatherings in fostering strong relationships with neighbours. “The Annual Community Barbeque is not just an event, but a platform where our diverse community can come together to celebrate our shared values, cultures, and aspirations,” she said. “It’s a time to connect, engage, and build a stronger Brampton South.”
This event was attended by local municipal, regional and federal representatives and elected officials.
The event also provided an opportunity for residents to interact directly with their local representatives, sharing concerns, ideas, and suggestions for the betterment of their neighbourhoods. With community engagement at the core of her vision, MP Sidhu remains committed to creating platforms where constituents can have their voices heard.
The success of the Annual Brampton South Barbeque once again underscores the power of the community. MP Sidhu thanks all attendees, stakeholders, and community leaders for their unwavering support and looks forward to continuing working with them to build a stronger and more connected city.
