Where’s Amy?: Russian fest


“Where’s Amy?” could not resist accepting the invitation to attend The Russian Festival at University High School in Carmel. I was greeted by co-founder of the Russian -American Culture Center’s Natalia Rekhter who took me on a wonderful tour of the campus. The school’s mission is to expand students’ horizons, develop long-term friendships and build global community. The well-attended festival held up to its claim that the day would be fun for the whole family. Ethnic food, arts and crafts by Russian artisans, Russian music, ballet, folk dance and activities for all ages were jammed packed through out the day. One highlight for me was watching a wonderful documentary on Russia then topping it off with a few cartoons ALL in Russian. Make plans to attend this event next year … it was fantastic.
