Summer oh summer. It's the time when Philadelphia decides to through most of the free festivals around the city...and how I plan to enjoy them even more now. This July, Grammy nominated headliners, cultural entertainers and pretty much everyone and their mother return to Penn's Landing in Philadelphia for the city's largest one-day festival, Global Fusion Festival and Week (GFF).
This year's 5th anniversary theme is "Carnival." Seems like an appropriate theme produced by the Multicultural Affairs Congress (MAC). The week (including festival) celebrates Philadelphia's diverse African Diaspora (first), Hispanic, Caribbean and Asian cultures. Past festivals have featured Boyz II Men, Toby Love, Tank, Oro Solido, Huey Dunbar and En Vogue. I wonder who they'll have this year to represent the Latino community this year; crosses fingers for Shakira lol.
