UMW’s Multicultural Fair
This past Saturday was a beautiful sunny day, perfect for the Multicultural Fair at the college. This is one of my favorite local events of the entire year, one that I have only missed once or twice in the fair’s history. It’s a great people-watching opportunity, and I always run into a few people I know.
Philippine dancing (below and at top) by the "Pilipino American Cultural Arts Society" (that's not a typo):
The African hand-drumming club (the hand drumming is African, obviously not the club):
"Koto Buki Kai," the Japanese dancers, show some young'uns how it's done:
The food is arguably the best part of the day. For lunch, I had grilled veggies in a pita from this guy. My husband had fried flounder and oysters from another vendor, where I got to sample fried alligator. Delicious!
Here are some scenes from last year's fair.
