European Festival!

Wherever you live there is probably a European festival. So many people have European roots to celebrate! We are longtime fans of the local euro fest and have been attending for the last eight years or so – it has been so much fun! This year was no exception:

We arrived just in time for lunch. I was thrilled to find the zero waste initiative, and to see the flood relief fundraiser for Serbia – charity begins at home…

Europefest is the only way I know to see the world half an hour from home – every major city has one, so get up and out and find the closest one to you. Let the eating-drinking-celebration of summer begin!
