Every year, the City of Brooks and local groups participate in Alberta Culture Days. It's a three-day even at the end of September that showcases local art and culture, and has been ongoing since 2008.
This year, there were several events at the Brooks Public Library, an art exhibit and sale by the Sage Brush Arts Group, performances by Tumbleweed Theatre and the ever-popular Taste of Nations event at the Lakeside Leisure Centre.
Added this year was a talent show put on by Brooks & County Immigration Services. Those featured in the Talent of Nations served as a prelude for what the community can expect from BCIS' famous Brooks Got Talent night (coming in November).
To start off the talent show, a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony took place, including a live demonstration on the stage. Then, the audience was invited to try the fine coffee and indulge in some homemade Ethiopian bread.
Check out some of the entertainment in this gallery. We certainly enjoyed the show, and we hope you did as well!
