Introducing the Los Angeles Sister City Festival
, a celebration of the cultures of el Pueblo's
21, count 'em, 21 sister cities. Who knew we had so many siblings scattered across the globe? (You can click here
for a list of consanguinean municipalities, if you'd like.) Among the highlights are A-listers like Berlin and Mexico City. Representing the second (or third) tier are such garden spots as Kaunas
, Lithuania and Busan
Regardless of their relative merits, all 21 of these burgs are, I'm certain, equal in the eyes of Angelenos. Each worthy city will therefore be represented at the festival, which will be held on the grounds of the Page Museum
(otherwise known as the tarpits) on Sunday, May 22, 2005 from 12:00 noon to 8 pm.
As our friends from Guangzhou, China might say: 再见那里**Translation: See you there!
