Acts from around the world performed on the main stage in front of Town Hall during a sunny Sudbury Day Festival this past Saturday. The Town Hall area was divided into three stages and filled with activities that combined local and multi cultural flavor.
The Second Annual Sudbury Day Festival started at noon on September 20, 2003. Corresponding with the lunchtime start there were plenty of lunch options. Rasoi, served Indian food, Little Pusan served Korean, Sweet Pepper served Thai and the American Legion served an American BBQ of hotdogs and hamburgers to the many hungry townspeople who came by the center of town for a day of free entertainment and socializing with neighbors.
The purpose of Sudbury Day was to reacquaint people with some of neighbors and cultures that are new to the town. This was done through the entertainment and activities that were put on by the town.
Children were allowed to climb and play on a fire engine, police car and ambulance parked around the Main Stage Area in front of Town Hall. On the Main Stage people saw acts from around the world. It started with a dance performance put on by the children of the Greater Chinese Cultural Council Association. They danced in teal and purple costumes with fans and colorful lion masks. The following act was the band Inca Son, from Peru, South America. The members of the band played traditional South American music with wooden flutes and drums. The next act on the main stage was the senior students from the Triveni School of Dance. They told ancient stories through dance. Their purple, gold and whit costumes had anklets with bells on them that jingled as they danced. The Mystic Paper Beasts Theatre Company performed
