Notes from the Heart...

Did you know that Laconia, NH has political refugees and
immigrants from over 30 countries?  Surprising, eh?  
Well, every September Laconia celebrates its rich diversity
with its Laconia Multicultural Market Day.  This year it
will be held on Saturday, September 12 , 2009,  from
10:00 am - 5:00 pm.  

This all-day festival has over thirty nations represented --
from Cuba to Rwanda to El Salvador and Iraq. The day is filled with cultural arts,
crafts, cuisines, children's section, animals, entertainment, exhibits, social services
and continuous musical performances.  

The day opens  with International Parade of the Flags at 11 a.m. to performances
by Sharon Danson, Black Sea Salsa, and more and ending with  the Swing
Caravan, a toe tappin’, finger snappin’, get it down deep-in-your-soul kind of
group whose  music is rooted in the great acoustic Gypsy Jazz tradition of Django
Reinhardt from France in the 1930s and 40s.

Admission to the festival is  FREE -- and will be held rain or shine.   For more info
