Description: Mayor Ron Searle thanks the participants and organizers of the Peel Multicultural Council fashion show at Fritterfest '78. Millie Correa, organizer of the show, stands immediately behind Mayor Searle, surrounded by some of the participants. Fritterfest celebrated Mississauga's fourth birthday and was organized by a committee chaired by Harold Shipp. It began on Friday night with an opening ceremony and fireworks at Square One. Olive Ball was named Mrs. Sauga for creating the best fritters. The parade on Saturday attracted an estimated 28.000 onlookers and was followed by continuous entertainment as well as games and displays from more than 80 local clubs. A celebrity hockey match took place that evening in Port Credit Arena and an estimated 20,000 attended the Monte Carlo night at Square One. Sunday's events included an ecumenical church service and finals of the sports tournaments. "Fritterfest" was the forerunner of Mississauga's "Carassauga" festival.
