Local Colors Festival - Roanoke, Virginia

Local Colors is an organization in the Roanoke Valley (Virginia) that celebrates diversity and promotes multi-cultural understanding through education, services, and events.  On Saturday, May 15th, there is a Local Colors Festival at Elmwood Park in Downtown Roanoke, Virginia.  Representatives of many countries come together with native foods, music, costume, dance and performances for a unique cultural celebration!  The event is free and is a wonderful place to spend a sunny Saturday with your family.  Keep checking the link for a schedule of events. 

I recommend that you arrive hungry so you can sample the food available and bring a nice blanket or lawn chairs to camp out in the park to watch the performances that take place all day on the main stage.  My husband and I have had the opportunity to attend portions of the event for the last 3 years and I highly recommend it for adults and children of all are sure to have a great time - hope to see you there!
