We had a great time "visiting" all the countries represented at the festival. Here are a few of the pictures I took of that event.

Kent is the most culturally diverse city in Washington and south King County is the most diverse area of our state. Our community is made up of people from around the globe of all races, creeds and customs. About half our population has a long history in America including many minorities. The other half of our population has more recently located in our area coming from all parts of the world. All our residents live in communities that reflect this great diversity of heritage and culture. Much of this demographic mixture has happened very rapidly over the last twenty years. Our schools have students where around 140 languages and dialects other then English are spoken at their homes. Local employers have employees where often dozens of different languages are spoken by their workers.
