Prio Bangla 2016- Bangladeshi Community Street Festival

The Bangladeshi community in our area again celebrated its heritage and contributions to our diversity with the annual Prio Bangla festival.

Bangladeshi foods, speakers, crafts, performers, and notables were part of this colorful event. Performers from other groups also showcased their talents, including Appalachian cloggers, Chinese dancers, Mexican dancers, and a Bolivian dance troupe.

Many thanks to Mr. Pryalal Karmakar for his help, and for his recognition of the Columbia Pike Documentary Project in observing and preserving our local culture and history.
