The 10th anniversary of an event that has become one of Boston's most visible celebrations of immigrants and multiculturalism.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of this event, the Mayor's Office of New Bostonians will showcase the diverse artistic talents of 10 performers from Boston's multicultural communities. One performer or group will be chosen to perform at the October 2009 "We Are Boston" gala dinner honoring world-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma.
Mayor Thomas M. Menino will welcome newcomers to the City of Boston, promising they will have the same opportunities as people before them. "Diversity is one of our greatest strengths," said Mayor Menino at last year's event. "And if we work together, we will build a stronger and better Boston."
New Bostonians Community Day activities will include a Flags of the World parade, free lunch, free immigration advice from attorneys, multilingual tours of City Hall, selection of a Talent Showcase winner and two runners up, a college and trade schools fair including culinary and other specialized training schools, information and resource tables, live music and art displays.
