Thousands of people celebrated their diversity at the annual Reston Multicultural Festival held Saturday, Sept. 24 at Lake Anne Plaza in Reston. The event honors the diversity of Reston and brings to life the vision that founder Robert E. Simon had for the community. The day featured a Naturalization Ceremony where citizens took the Oath of Allegiance and international performers entertained the crowd with singing, dancing and drumming from three stages. In addition, the event included a book fair, family arts and crafts activities, a beading demonstration, global cafe food vendors, global market vendors and local community organizations. The event was presented by the Reston Community Center, hosted by Lake Anne Plaza, and co-sponsored by Reston Association, with partners from a variety of Reston-based organizations.
