Cultural Festivals & Parades!


One of my favorite weekend adventures is checking out the continuous feed of cultural festivals in our nations capital.  You’re transported to another country or region for a brief afternoon – some would say a mini vacation.  Costumes, music, food,dance – everything envelopes you for a few hours –and without getting on a plane, fighting the airport crowds or packing every last sippy cup or beloved toy– you are somewhere else.  What a fun way to open the eyes and ears of kids (& grown-ups) …and you can even be home by nap time!


About the cultured kid

I've traveled, lived, worked and studied all over the world. Europe, North Africa, Central & South America, the Middle East and Asia. The more different the culture, the better! I'm determined to introduce my two boys to our multi-cultural world. Living in Washington, D.C. there are international festivals, parades and cultures right in our own backyard. I'll share with you our adventures around town and those that take us on international journeys. I'll also share ideas for introducing your family to foreign food, culture and community at home.
