We went to this festival last year and had a great time.  Here are the pictures.

Sarah really enjoyed the crafts and in particular the doll-making. The doll-making was very cool because there was a storyteller leading the activity. The picture is Sarah getting a hand with her doll and some advise on sticking to her dreams even if people laugh at her. The lady was fantastic!
