A visitor from Iran enjoyed participating in the bannock making contest at Fort William Historical Park’s Anishnawbe Keeshigun Aboriginal Festival.

“It’s excellent and I love it,” says Masim Gahavidel, a visitor from Tehran, Iran. “I hope these competitions will happen more in this city. The traditional foods from here are more interesting for me.”

Chuck Meshake won the bannock making contest after creating two loads of fry bread in a cast iron frying pan over the open fire.
