Chicago has residents from almost every country around the globe, making it an absolute melting pot of cultures and ethnicities—and we think that’s something to celebrate! Over the past two months, we’ve been slowly weaving a rich, colorful tapestry made up of the diverse ethnic communities of Chicago at Neighborhoods of the World presented by ComEd, and here is the end result!
Each week we celebrated a different culture by enjoying authentic live music, dance performances, cuisine, art, and costumes. China, Lithuania, Mexico, Greece, the Philippines, Africa, Italy, and India were among those countries represented. Now here’s a photo recap of all the energetic, colorful, and expressive cultural celebrations that occurred at Neighborhoods of the World 2014!
Thank you to everyone who came out, watched, celebrated, performed, and participated in Neighborhoods of the World 2014! We can’t wait ’til next year!
