#042-365 Celebration

Here are a younger group of kids dancing and celebrating at the Paniyiri Festival last weekend. What was most impressive about the crowd was the number of nationalities that had come out ot enjoy the great Greek cuisine, and just generally have a good time. These kids had a ball and really threw themselves into the dancing.

Isn't it wonderful when the children celebrate their heritage? My DH is of Swedish lines and in this little California valley there are a lot of Swedish families. There were a lot of heritage celebrations until recently....there weren't that many younger people stepping up to the plate to take over responsibilities handed down from father to son. Too bad!

These types of festivities are fun to attend whether you are of that particular nationality or not. The "U" of Washington (Seattle) district has a StreetFair festivity in mid May each year. Near by Greek restaurants have booths, as well as other types of vendors. The food is to die for!! Lots of fun for all ages.

What I find so interesting is how the imagery transcends location - Greek dancing in Australia and it looks like it could have been a shot taken in NY. It really illustrates the Global Village too.
