Then we get down to the oratory, dancing, singing, and drawing:

One of the goals of this festival is to encourage kids to identify with their cultural heritage and to value their town and themselves. Incidentally, last year's festival is one of the reasons why I am able to work so closely with the local public schools. It's a lot of work to put together, but absolutely beautiful to watch as the town comes together to celebrate.
This is what last year's looked like.
