On Saturday Sept 10th the City of Mississauga experienced a unifying splash of different colours at the CIBC Rung De’ ONE Canadian Colour Festival presented by ZEE TV. The RDO festival held at Scholars’ Green, Sheridan College, Mississauga has changed the landscape of interactive outdoor events in the city like never before.
Despite the testy weather, heavy downpours and gusting winds attendees trickled into the RDO premises over the afternoon hours to enthusiastically make the most of the remainder of a beautiful, hot summer. The Mayor of Mississauga, Bonnie Crombie made a memorable appearance at the 3rd Annual RDO festival, commending the organizers for their continuous efforts in creating a truly inimitable celebration of being Canadian in the heart of City of Mississauga. Ward 4 Councillor John Kovac couldn’t resist getting coloured and thoroughly enjoyed playing with colour himself. The Dean of Sheridan College Mississauga, Sylvia Lowndes complemented the organizers for their professional organization and execution of youth centric festivities.
As a special gesture from team RDO for the festival’s title sponsor CIBC, there was an all pink colour throw dedicated to CIBC’s forthcoming Run for Cure initiative to raise awareness about Breast Cancer.
All sponsors, partners, patrons, volunteers and especially attendees were very pleased with the entire experience of this year’s festival and left eagerly looking forward to a promising RDO 2017.
