Today Greensboro is celebrating El Día de los Niños, Children's Day. downtown, in front of the Central Branch of the Greensboro Public Library. You can participate in literacy activities and see performing artists of all ages share their talents. The event began as a nationally celebrated initiative twenty years ago in 1997 and it has grown since then, as has our immigrant community.
From 1-4:30 pm today, come down to Church Street and experience books, music, dancing, art, food, and much more. We took the above photo a few years ago, when the festival was still held in Center City Park. While the venue moved one block over, the festivities will be the same, and even better. The photo features an example of the elaborate costumes you will see and the photo opportunities you will have. The event is free and open to the public.
We are so lucky to live in such a culturally diverse community.
