Rain didn't dampen spirits at the seventh-annual Surrey Fusion Festival.

The festival, considered B.C.’s largest multicultural celebration, had dozens of international pavilions representing a variety of countries from around the globe, with colourful clothing and food.

On Saturday, performers included Bruce Cockburn, Ash Grunwald, Aidan Knight, The Boom Booms and Hey Ocean!

On Sunday, the Concord stage hosted world instrumentalist Pavlo, as well as Alpha Yaya Diallo, African Stages, Ache Brasil and Tropicana.
