Amy Attias: Celebrate Diversity Saturday!

To the editor:Sep. 14th LTEs -- AA

This Saturday, September 29th, the Village of Croton will be celebrating its first Multicultural Festival, highlighting just a few of the different cultures in our beautiful Crazy Quilt. In this time of great divisiveness, where hate has been given permission to openly be voiced, every step we can come closer to one another is the best antidote. Love does indeed counteract fear and hate, and this small festival is our first contribution.

Sharing food, music, and dance from other cultures helps us know one another. Try a hula hoop, dance to African drumbeats, listen to the tap of Irish dancers, and just enjoy your neighbors. There will be live music, dance demonstrations, community art projects, yoga, stories for children, food trucks and local food and dessert vendors, as well as a brewery from Ossining. Browse beautiful photographs, paper cuttings, and other crafts.

This is not a political event. This is a celebration of Us. There is something for everyone. Come join us as we remember that with our differences, we are indeed One World.

The event takes place at Senasqua Park, on Elliott Way, from 12 til 4, with a raindate of Sunday, Septemgber 30. Hope to see you there!

Amy Attias, Trustee, Croton on Hudson
