Celebrating the 11th Annual Festival of Cultures

The day began early with food trucks arriving, volunteers helping set up tents and
tables, and participants preparing for a full day of community celebration. Soon the park would fill up with visitors enjoying the cultural exhibits, resource agencies, performances, artisan vendors and the children's crafts.
The Morris Dancers opened the performance program, followed by the popular young Indian dancer Arghya Shetty. Next was a beautiful appearance of a Thai dancer with very long fingernails and costumed wings.  Read More
