Eden Prairie is settling into the communal, family, feasting and sharing spirit of Thanksgiving this week. So, too, is our troubled nation. This is good. When in the slow lane, we rediscover the color, texture and genius of our families and neighbors.
Mid-summer’s PeopleFest invited us to, similarly, take good measure of our Eden Prairie community; to discover its multicultural mojo.
PeopleFest is a 10-day series of informing presentations that help reveal the cultural threads, abilities and talents common to EP residents through literature, dance, music, food and the plastic arts. Click here for details.
On Sunday, July 31, PeopleFest held a “party” of sorts for everyone. A very windy Staring Lake Park was the setting. I worked the colorful scene with a GoPro Hero9 camera for an EPLN video. I found the human family in a Thanksgiving spirit — alive, diverse, together and sharing its genius. The 8-minute, 30-second program needed no narrator. Enjoy! Enjoy!
