Many families new to the Botanical Center enjoyed The Celebration of Cultures on Saturday, December 5.
Storyteller Raffini from the RI Black Storytellers, Congolese Youth Group from Dorcas International Institute of Rhode Island, Bollywood Dancers from the Indian Association of RI, and Latin Dancers from Grupo Arcoiris Youth and Children’s Talent Connection shared their talents with an enthusiastic audience.
The day was beautiful. Visitors enjoyed a tour of the fabulous poinsettia display interspersed among the more permanent tropicals or stopped at the various information tables to learn something about URI Extension offerings at the Botanical Center. Kids and their families were busy at the educational and decorative botanical arts areas. And plant lovers learned about and made purchases of indoor plants grown and nurtured at the Botanical Center polyhouses.
