Ethnic Fair Draws Hundreds

Hi Everybody!

Yesterday, we went to Boston and will be sharing some posts with you in coming days! That's what I was up to.

For today, however, there are photos of a wonderful, and I mean really wonderful, city ethnic fair we attended last weekend in Western Massachusetts.

Wow, what a perfect example of good planning this event turned out to be.

There were dozens of food vendors selling everything from curry and shish kabob to pizza, bbq, and much more.

Many different countries were gastronomically represented such as this friendly and welcoming vendor who served food from a restaurant called  Flavours of Malaysia in Pittsfield.

The kids loved the bouncy house.

There were tons of arts and crafts, too!  I loved the tie dyed items and colorful jewelry.

There was excellent entertainment, too! Here, a group with a dynamic singer, and super backup singers, fills the air with spirited music.

A variety of different kinds of entertainers kept the crowds happy all through the afternoon.

The object shown at the top of this post was at a booth representing a Mexican restaurant called Panchos of Pittsfield.

Of course, the best part of an event like this is bringing all kinds of people from different cultures together. It's a great time for all.

Yes we certainly do have Ethnic fairs where I live..hundreds of them from Irish to Scottish to Greek. I am NOT a fan of big crowds so don't go to many of them but now and then I do.I'm most attracted to the food booths..ha ha but love the music at them too. I think you got the "essence" of the fair in Pittsfield...good job!

The only thing is that we have the Food Market outside our work every Thursday, where you can buy food from different vendors.
Looks like you had a great time.
Enjoy your weekend.

I don't know about any ethnic fairs near me but I must say I'm getting hungry just looking at all that yummy food. Sounds like a fun time for sure. Hugs, Linda
