For the 51st year in a row, Mosaic festival kicked off on Thursday.
A returning guest for this year’s event includes the African pavilion. They’re returning from a 14-year hiatus and are thrilled to be back.
Among traditional African storytelling, there will also be delicious food.
“I think your taste buds are going to be confused at first but you’ll enjoy the food because it’s very vibrant and loud,” Nayasha Mwela said.
A brand new addition to this year’s festival is the Serbian pavilion.
Spokeswoman for the new pavilion, Tamara Smiljic, said they’re very excited for people to learn and experience their culture.
“You will see a lot of dancers,” Smiljic said. “There’s going to be our five to 10-year-old group, we’re going to have adults and we’re going to have our little grandmas dancing too — it’s going to be very adorable.”
Mosaic takes place around the Queen City and wraps up Saturday night.
