International Day of Friendship This Sunday at Borough Hall

This Sunday, August 7, from 1 pm to 5 pm, head over to Borough Hall for the third annual International Day of Friendship, celebrating Brooklyn’s diversity. The festivities will kick off with a “Unity Parade of Flags” from Fulton Mall to Borough Hall, followed by cultural performances, tastes of international cuisine, and more.

“I call on all Brooklynites to ‘Embrace Your Hyphen’ as Americans with distinct heritage,” said Borough President Eric Adams. “International Day of Friendship reflects the beauty of a borough where 47 percent of households speak a language other than English at home, more than one-third of residents were born overseas, and the sounds of many different languages are the music of our street corners. I invite everyone to stand with me in our diversity as One Brooklyn.”

  • Everyone knows who this is….

    It’s all good to know about and explore other cultures though the protective filter of the educational environment we once had in this country.


    Its absolute POISON to western civilization’s basic structure and standards and values. This is a (further) attempt to defocus and pollute the western values this country is based on. And youll notice that the more we get away from and dilute the western centric of the U.S. the worse the conditions here become.
