A picture perfect day for Blaine World Fest

The weather was picture perfect for the approximately 1,500 people who came to the sixth annual Blaine World Fest at Town Square Park Saturday, according to Nate Monahan, a parks supervisor for the city of Blaine who led the event planning.

There were plenty of opportunities for the large gathering, which Monahan estimated was perhaps 100 more people than last year.

Eight groups wowed the crowd with dances from various cultures from Mexico to Africa to China to Argentina and much more.

If the sights were not enough to stimulate the senses, local restaurants brought food samples to give area residents tastes from around the world that are available in their community’s back yard.
