Dear Friends,
It is that time of the year again: the birds are returning, the trees are beginning to develop leaves, and the Festival of Nations is near!  This yearly event, nearly 85 years old, is one of the high-points of the Minnesota festival scene, with tens of thousands of people from all over Minnesota and the surrounding states visiting every year.  It is an exhibition of cultures, music, and food, and is really wonderful for people of all ages.
