City officials cut the origami ribbon

It was an absolutely gorgeous day in Steveston for the City of Richmond to open the Steveston Town Square Park.

We were honoured to have the Mayor and other delegates from sister city Wakayama, Japan attend the morning’s celebrations.

An origami ribbon was cut to commemorate the opening and a new cherry blossom tree (special to Wakayama) was planted and dedicated.

Everyone enjoyed a special cake by Steveston Bakery, created specially for the occasion.
