A Celebration of African Culture


June 16th marked the 19th annual African Festival in Lowell.  Here are a few photos from the fun filled day along the Merrimack River.


Mayor Samaras attended the festival early in the day.


Vice Chair Vesna Nuon presented the proclamation and conducted the torch lighting ceremony.


The vice chair got some help when the torch needed adjusting.


Chief Randy Brashears of the UMass Lowell Police Department was the keynote speaker for the 2018 Festival.


With visitors from Chelmsford to Copenhagen, it was truly a festive afternoon to remember.
