International coup for Surrey

Editor:

Surrey Coun. Mary Martin, chair of the city’s Fusion Festival committee, and the City of Surrey should be proud of their accomplishments in receiving this prestigious international award for the Fusion Festival.

Our event was named the “Best Festival” at the Nashville, Tenn. announcement.

It is nice to see a good news story for an event in our community that is only six years old and competing with – and beating out – the prestigious TD Toronto Jazz Festival. With more than 100,000 people attending last year, it is great to have such a successful event in our city.

Mike Garisto, Surrey
