Muslims, Hindus and representatives from other faiths sat side by side interacting with festival attendees as they moved from one booth to the next. Other non-faith groups such as the Greenville Young Democrats and Students In Action were also in attendance.
As part of the celebration, attendees were treated to hand painting, games and treats like snow cones and cotton candy.
Mandy Laney brought her three children Benson, Cohen and Quentin to the event. Laney said it was important that they have an opportunity to experience different cultures.
“We were on a picnic at Falls Park but we didn’t know it was today,” Laney said. “I thought it was important that all these people of different faiths are able to get together.”
