Multicultural Festival was ‘an amazing event’ | LETTER

I want to praise and thank all those folks who planned, organized, and performed in last weekend’s free multicultural festival in Renton. It was an amazing event and one this community should be proud of, demonstrating so positively the value and strength of diversity here. It was a unifying and inspiring event. Thank you to all who contributed in any way to this festival. I can’t wait till next year!

Julie Horan, Renton
