Reminder - Local Colors Festival Tomorrow
The Local Colors Festival is tomorrow in Roanoke, Virginia at Elmwood Park from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and is free for the whole family! Local Colors is an organization in the Roanoke Valley (Virginia) that celebrates diversity and promotes multi-cultural understanding through education, services, and events. Representatives of many countries come together with native foods, music, costume, dance and performances for a unique cultural celebration! If you're looking for something to do this weekend, this is a wonderful place to spend a sunny Saturday with your family. The schedule of events is available as well as parking information on the Local Colors Website.
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 and 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 ages...you are sure to have a great time - hope to see you there!
