Orange County celebrates its deep diversity
September 15, 2013 by Mark
The City of Irvine Cultural Arts and Activities Program is presenting its 12th annual Irvine Global Village Festival. Representatives of dozens of cultures are attending what has become Irvine’s most popular community event.
The activities begin with the Walk for Unity 5K in the morning. Worldly music and dance performances will roam the grounds throughout the festival. Ethnic foods and indulgences populate the space abundantly, ensuring all visitors a new culinary experience. Plenty of demonstrations and exhibits are available to both educate and entertain. The festival boasts a marketplace for mementos, with a kids’ area to entertain the young ones as well.
Businesses from Irvine, Placentia, Yorba Linda and surrounding environs are welcome to assist the sponsors. Community representatives — both from non-profits and local businesses — are attending at the Community Partners Pavilion. Inviting the residents of Orange County with poster printing or banner printing is likely to give the Irvine Global Village Festival more attention and guests. Postcard printing might be an ideal platform, as cards could be crafted to resemble the various locales representing at the festival.
Bill Barber Park houses the festivities at 4 Civic Center Plaza, Irvine, California 92606. Everyone is welcome to attend the Irvine Global Village Festival on Saturday, September 28, from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. Admission is free and food tickets run at $1 each. Parking is not available on site, but the city’s website has transportation instructions and more information. Cycling to the festival is encouraged and dogs are welcome as long as they remain on a leash.
