Celebrate good times
Monday, December 19, 2016
Everyone loves a parade! Or a festival. Or an outdoor concert. Or all of the above!
When it comes to community festivals and celebrations, some of the benefits are obvious. Neighbors gathering to celebrate good times—what could be better. But festivals do a lot more than that. For instance, they can play a key role in shaping a community’s values, while also drawing tourist dollars to key locations. (For more benefits, see this article: http://ow.ly/RRVn300iwtm.)
Here in southeastern Los Angeles county, one of our largest and best-loved community festival is the annual Carnaval Primavera Downtown Festival, which takes place every spring in the city of Huntington Park. A family friendly, three-day event, Carnaval especially reflects the unique heritage and traditions of our Hispanic community. Learn more about it here: https://www.facebook.com/carnavalprimavera/.
