No matter what your nationality is, you should check out the Festival Of Nations, at the Empire State Plaza Convention Center in Albany.

Whether your Italian, Polish, German or whatever you ethnic background, there's likely to be a representation at the festival. This is a great event to bring your children to so they can find out information about the history of where their family came from, before they came to America.

All afternoon, there are demonstrations on stage, complete with colorful outfits and music from each all 25 countries. Plenty of booths with things you can buy from each country. Then there's my favorite - the food. This is the perfect place to try cuisine from the different countries.

The admission fee is just $5 dollars for adults, and $2 dollars for kids between 3 - 12-years-old. Keep in mind that each vendor does charge for food. There's plenty of free parking in the garage. Even if it rains, you won't get wet, since everything is indoors.

The festival is this Sunday, October 30, from 11 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. It's almost like going around the world in just a few hours. Linda and I try to go every year. It's a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
