Somali Independence Day
Saturday is Minneapolis’ Somali Independence Day celebration, promoting diversity and intercultural appreciation. There will be live music, food, animals and art gallery exhibits.
Thousands of people are expected to flock to Minneapolis on Sunday for this year’s Somali Independence Day festival. Organizers say the event is designed to celebrate Somalia’s independence, and also pay homage to the United States — the country that gave refugees a chance at a new life.
