Ethnic Fest in Tacoma – Pierce County

Our information booth and adjacent children’s activities booth at this year’s Ethnic Fest at Wright Park were very successful again this year. Here, on Saturday, Kay helps children make race unity bracelets and George shares the Faith with an interested inquirer. In six hours on Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., we gave away 320 balloons, with some reading “No Room in My Heart for Prejudice” and others reading “World Citizen.” We could have given away many more, but we had to save some of the helium for Sunday! We gave away about 500 balloons in the two days of Ethnic Fest (that’s the capacity of the helium tank). Dozens of children, with their parents, stopped by to make race unity bracelets, and many Fest visitors stopped by to have extended conversations about religion and the Baha’i Faith.

Ethnic Fest is an excellent venue for sharing the Faith. Thank you to the many people who volunteered their time to help!
