Sunshine and Soca at the 15th International Festival!!

It’s been a while since I’ve delved into the rich cultural diversity overflowing in Savannah. I’ll take you to the 15th annual International festival held by SCAD at Forsyth park. The rain knew better than to fall for three consecutive days and though the grass was still a lil damp it was an absolutely beautiful day for the event. I missed a bit of the entertainment but the best was definitely left for last and a band called Mystic NRG  thrilled us all with their upbeat performance. I got a nice pre-birthday party from that and enjoyed every bit of the soca that they dished out. 🙂 Ok .. here are the thousands of words for you to decide if it was a great day or not …..

The line-up ….. they really were down to the minute and promptly ended at 4pm even though the crowd was nowhere near ready to go home.

  1. It looks so much fun! Truly international, and a great turn-out. And you do know that hummus is seriously addictive don’t you? Oh, it’s probably too late… 🙂

Would love to know what you think! .....
