The Vanderbilt Kennedy Center and the Multicultural Outreach Program helds its first Family Fall Festival on Saturday, Oct. 13, to much success.
The festival was estimated to have drawn around 150 adults and children to Magnolia Lawn for a day of music, arts and crafts, games, bilingual storytelling, and more. Among other activities, children decorated pumpkins and made music with maracas fashioned out of recycled water bottles.
Organizers of the event were pleased with the scope of multiculturalism that was present at the festival, which aimed to bring families of all nations together for a day of autumn fun. Guests from nations such as Mexico, Honduras, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Argentina, Chile, Domincan Republic, Cuba, Iran, England, Kurdistan, and Brazil enjoyed the lovely weather and the opportunity to spend time with their families.
The Vanderbilt Kennedy Center extends appreciation to the attendees and volunteers who made the Family Fall Festival such a successful event.
