Local Colors Festival

Hello again Dear Ones:
This weekend we did something fun, different and significant to our family.
We went to a festival of colors. This festival celebrates diversity, and promotes multicultural understanding. The whole thing started with a Parade of Nations. More than 70 countries were represented. There were exhibits of arts and crafts, booths selling authentic food from a variety of countries, & different dances performed . Below are some pics from the parade. The last two are from those representing GUATEMALA!
The next shot we saw walking around the festival. Someone actually bedazzeled their car! Can you believe it?
Well I guess that is it for today! 
Blessings!

  1. Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog. I can't imagine what it must be like waiting for Guatemala to reopen. I said a prayer for you today. ~Juli

  2. Hi! Well, we wanted to do fun stuff this weekend too but my mom came to visit and we had a round of the stomach flu here so we didn't do much (not that my mom isn't fun, it just changed our plans :) ) Our first homestudy mtg went great and we have our next/last interviews this week on Thursday. I just hope the tummy bug is GONE for good though b/c this is NOT agood week for sickies!! My poor blog is sadly neglected right now!!

  6. Hi! I found your blog from Emily N's and was so happy to see the pictures of Guatemala in the parade of Nations from Local Colors! We were a little late and arrived as Japan was marching through :( I hope our boys can march next year to represent their birth country!

    It was very fun finding your blog!
