Sundays in My City

Unknown Mami

Yesterday was Nashville's annual Celebration of Cultures.  It's a festival that I love going to and is a great way for Nashville to show off the wonderful diversity of cultures that make up our wonderful city.  Held every year at Centennial Park (the home of Nashville's famous version of the Parthenon), festival goers have a chance to shop from a wide variety of vendors, try a stunning amount of ethnic cuisine and be introduced to a many of the different groups that will teach you about their home countries.  This is the first year we've spent any real time in the Children's area and that, in my opinion, was the best part of the whole festival for us.  Our kids got a chance to try different instruments at the musical petting zoo, made a toolbox with Home Depot, did yoga with a woman who specializes in children's yoga, learned science with Mr. Bond, the Science Guy and listened to stories in a gypsy wagon.  So they weren't all ethnic, but they had fun.

Here are some of my favorite shots from yesterday.
