The 13th annual Laconia Multicultural Festival will be held Saturday.
David Stamps is one of the event’s organizers and says it has grown to include more than 80 vendors and two music stages.
But he says it also hasn’t gotten away from its roots.
“We have a lot of nonprofits who participate. We have a lot of refugees, first Americans, and many Franco-Americans. It’s just such a variety.”
The downtown festival runs from 10 to 4 and opens with a Parade of Flags.
The event features cuisine from around the globe, along with face-painting and arts and crafts for children.
