Over fifty nationalities gathered to celebrate their cultures. Most were immigrant families connected by the city we all call home. Each culture shared the spotlight, to entertain and delight… though there was someone who didn’t want any attention. His tent doesn’t advertise his business. The free balloons didn’t advertise his company, either. Only the Midtown District. He didn’t want to be interviewed, but “everything here costs money and I didn’t want the kids to be left out,” we heard him say.
