They played from 1:00 to 1:30pm & again from 2:00 to 2:30pm. They were good. Since we got there shortly after 1pm and left around 2:45pm they were really the ONLY music we managed to catch at the Rotary Park Band Stand. There was a Reggae band at the City Hall plaza, playing at the same time, and I caught some of their performance and took some pictures.

The vibrancy that oozed out of Saturday’s ‘Laconia Multicultural Festival‘, September 12, 2015, was palpable. It indeed was a festival; colorful, merry, noisy, aromatic and collegial. Everybody was having a good time. This was Laconia at its very best on what was a picture perfect day. We are great supporters of this ‘Day’. We have been to all but one of the 14 ‘Multicultural Days‘ — last year being the one exception because we happened to be in Acadia.

This year’s ‘Festival’ was good. The energy and spirit was back. It reminded you what it was meant to be. I miss the night concert that we used to have but 2015 was indeed memorable. There are now two venues for music, the traditional stages in ‘Rotary Park‘ and a new performance tent at ‘City Hall’. That was good. More variety, moe music. Quite a few vendors, though the numbers might have been a tad down. Wasn’t packed, but a respectable crowd. I always wonder where all the other people from Laconia, Gilford, Tilton etc. are on the day. The ‘Festival’ is hard to miss.

“Black Thunder” & “Neha Parikh’s Classical Indian Dancers”, two perennial favorites and “Sayon Camara’s West African Drumming” as well as the “O’Brien Clan” did us all proud.

Lots of good food at affordable prices. Interesting merchandise. Not a hint of trouble or strife. A few police officers around — and they could be seen having a good time interacting with the folks. I took about 230 pictures. I will try and showcase as many as I can.

Thank YOU Laconia. That was good. Bravo!
