Black, African and Caribbean folk strut their stuff at the Pier

The third and last event put on by Bling Events International took place in Spencer \smith Park Saturday night.

You had to be there to get the full vibe – the pictures taken by Mozelle tell some of the story .

These live music events were in recognition and celebration of Black, African, Caribbean, Canadian appreciation month – which was a proclamation Carlene Ling (Event Organizer) requested and received through the Mayor’s office.

The events were not heavily promoted – people who were part of the communities being celebrated knew and they took part.

The objective was for people to get out and have some fun but not draw large crowds where the needed social distancing would become difficult.
Bling International put on a great show Saturday night at the Burlington Pier. Fun was had by all.



Good crowds but not huge crowds milling about in the cool evening air.

This looks like a Congo Line.

    This was one of the best evenings we’ve had in a very long time. There were approximately 8 different shows. Something for everyone. In spite of the horrible jet ski accident, these entertainers helped us refocus and smile again. For that, we thank each and every one of them. They were so gracious to the wedding party and took a break while the couple exchanged their vows. It was so nice to see the kiddies dancing in front of the stage and the entertainers interacting with them. Just a wonderful feeling all around. A shout out to our first responders that evening – fire/police/paramedics. Burlington loves you guys.
