    Enjoyed the event, but never hooked up with the organizer or others. No central meet up location made it difficult to "meet" other members.

    Was not very impressed. There where not enough food vendors, or entertainment. I did enjoy see a lot of people walking around in their native attire .

    Tough to find someone in a colorful shirt with all the other exotic native clothing there. Sorry i missed the group, but enjoyed the festival and saw other friends from work I hung with.
