On Saturday it is the Lowell Water Festival.
Run by the Cambodian community it transforms the banks of the Merrimack to a reasonable facsimile of the Mekong.
Usually blessed with brilliant sunshine, you hear Khmer being spoken walk past stalls selling traditional Asian food, spot the Buddhist monks and see stages of traditional dances and other performances. and of course teams racing the traditional dragon boats too.
the food is amazing and very varied. You have got to love this festival.!
