Perhaps more so now than ever in recent memory, we need to come together, set aside our differences and agree to work together toward the future of equality and understanding that, of late, can feel so far from our grasps. With the tag line “Our Diversity is Our Strength,” this year’s 23rd annual Unity in the Community multicultural festival serves the important role of encouraging mutual acceptance of all cultures, including the diverse groups that make up our own local community. Guests to this year’s celebration can enjoy performances from numerous local cultural groups throughout the day, in between browsing booths from career, education and health resource organizations. Kids in need can also pick up free school supplies and bike helmets (while supplies last).
Sat, Aug. 19 from 10 am-4 pm; parade at 9 am • Free • Riverfront Park, Clocktower Meadow • 507 N. Howard • nwunity.org
