The annual Multicultural Festival will be taking place this Saturday and Sunday (4/30 & 5/1) from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. each day.  The event will once again take place under the huge shade trees on the grounds of Sacred Heart Catholic Church located at 2508 Appleby Sand Road in Nacogdoches.

As the name of the event implies, the goal of this get-together is to showcase the food, talents, and cultures of some of the people who live in Deep East Texas. Father George Elliott, the pastor at Sacred Heart, points out that we are all God's children and we should embrace opportunities like this to learn about each other and to love our neighbors.

A quick word of caution, if you're driving by Sacred Heart Catholic Church this Saturday or Sunday afternoon, the smell of the smorgasbord of delicious foods being offered will draw you into the parking lot.
