Our local Bangladeshi-American association, Prio Bangla, held its annual Multicultural Car Parade this year along the Pike.
Due to safety and health restrictions warranted by the continued COVID-19 pandemic's Delta variant, this years festival was again a car parade through the neighborhoods along Columbia Pike, guided by Arlington County motorcycle patrolmen. Representatives of the Bolivian dance community also participated
Arlington County Board member Catie Cristol and Virginia Assembly delegate Alfonso Lopez were honored guests. Thanks to Pryalal Karmakar and the enthusiastic crew of Prio Bangla for their help.
