Sister Cities Day 2010

Scenes from Sister Cities Day 2010

A potential lucky winner enters the drawing

The cultural pageantry on display at this year’s Sister Cities Day celebration filled Nicollet Island Pavillion Sunday, June 19th. One of ten Sister Cities participating in the annual event, Minneapolis-Tours ambassadors turned out for an afternoon of fun, goodwill and information sharing about the organization and our beloved Tours.

At one point in the program, a rousing performance of Les Canadiens Errants enlivened the crowd, while inquiring minds at the Minneapolis-Tours booth wanted to know about our ‘tours!’

Okay, Tours may not be as popular as the City of Lights, but that won’t be the case for long with our marvelous team of Minneapolis-Tours volunteers who were out in force raising awareness about our organization and la ville de Tours.

Many thanks to the Meet Minneapolis Global Partnership Program for all their work in putting on and sponsoring the event, and to those who stopped by our booth the say hello. And a very special ‘Thank You’ to our very own Minneapolis-Tours volunteers—You Rock!
