During the late afternoon, many people were enjoying the first-ever Multicultural Festival in Great Neck Plaza on Sunday, June 26.

As the Sidewalk Sale was coming to a close, the clothing shops displayed racks of clothes on the street in front of their stores and people were haggling to get the best prices.

Children were taking home artsy Chinese name paintings and caricature drawings for free, though they had to get a ticket first.

The Minion from Nature’s Remedy was very popular—and a few children followed him into the store when he tried to take a break.

The first-ever Multicultural Fest was a well attended and engaging festival. Many people just sat down and chatted—and no one was checking their phone. 🙂
