Multicultural Parade on Intercultural Day
The Intercultural Day in Reykjavik will be held this coming Saturday 16th of May. This is the first time that the Intercultural Day is held and it´s aim is to celebrate the diversity provided by the municipal community. The program is magnificent and is made in such a way that all can have a good time and diversity will blossom.
The program starts at 13.00 with a Multicultural Parade which takes off from Hallgrímskirkja. The Multicultural Parade is the common project of The World March and various organizations of immigrants. The aim of the World March, which takes place later this year, is to work for Peace and Nonviolence. The heading of the Multicultural Parade this year is Peace and Unity a theme which fits well in this day and age. Ómar Ragnarsson has composed a World March Song which Svanur Brass Band will play for the first time in the beginning of the Parade and again at Ráðhús where the Parade will end.
In Ráðhús Reykjavíkur and Iðnó there will be variety of entertainment from 14.00 – 17.00 and everyone is welcome. There will be many acts, for instance a Bamboo Dance, The Dance of the Snowlion from Tibet, Japanese Tea Ceremony, songs from Kenya, Shri Lanka, Iraq, Bulgaria and India just to name a few.
