    This was my 1st time @ the festival & it was gr8. The food and crafts were exceptional. As was the music. it was nice to see so many people if different cultures and races joining together for a day of love and rejoicing. My King and son and brother n law all performed a Niyah Bingi. We plan to go again next year. We took our granddaughter and at 15 mths of age even she could feel the love. It is important for her to know her grandfather heritage and it was definitely a place for her to learn. I want to thank everyone who put the festival together and a big thank you to via catering your food was the bomb.
