FESTIVAL OF NATIONS
IN HOT, HOT ST. LOUIS
60 countries participated at this weekend's
Festival of Nations, at Tower Grove Park.
Despite the record-setting heat (100˚+)
crowds enjoyed the festivities at
4 stages, 50+ kitchens, and beautiful crafts booths
throughout the park.
This was a rare opportunity to sample
authentic dishes from lesser-known cuisines
(Kuala Lumpur, Kurdish, Afghan, Nepal, Nigeria, India)
plus enjoy the culture and music from these performers.
The most refreshing booth (on this hot, hot day)
sold coconut water, served fresh in iced coconuts.
