Temple City Parks and Recreation held its first multi-culture festival Saturday at Temple City park.
Scores of people from around Temple City popped by to see the different acts and try ethnic foods from numerous vendors. The highly anticipated Kogi taco truck had event goers standing in line across the length of the park.
The celebration of the diverse cultures in the area was showcased with numerous acts of dance and song. There was also a children’s art contest which held particular appeal to many in attendance.
The first colorful presentation was that of the Zhi-Qing Association of southern California in which elaborate dance represented the different cultures in China.
The Parade of Nations included sisters Jasmine and Valerie Johnson, 10 and 9 respectively, who proudly held a flag from one of the many united nations and placed it on a pedestal in the gazebo.
Additionally there was a rendition of a Chinese Opera in which a mayor sings of his accomplishments and anguish. The actor who played the role received a standing ovation and proceeded to the audience to let them try on his unusual headgear.
Children in attendance were given “passports” in which they could fill with stamps from countries around the world and once completed were given a prize.
