Shrewsbury – A diverse representation of the community attended the India Summer Festival held July 27 at SAC Park. The festival celebrated the food, games and cultures of different states of India. Among the activities were Bollywood dance lessons, beanbag toss on a kathakali mask, temporary henna tattoos, rangoli coloring sheets, and a vegetable and fruit carving contest.

Proceeds will benefit the Shrewsbury Public Library Foundation, which is providing funds for the library building project.
