Yes, the Portland International Business District’s Multi-Cultural Festival, noon to 6 p.m. July 10 in the Northeast 72nd Avenue park blocks north of Sandy Boulevard, just keeps getting better. For instance, the entertainment lineup now includes Bellisimonde “electric world music,” a Brazilian band, the Reggae group Randy Ross, the band Spider Moccasin, and a Bahai band Ladder of the Soul, as well as the Mexican dance troupe Corozon and a belly dancer. There will be ethnic foods to purchase, tables manned by businesses, non-profits and volunteers offering a variety of things, and a raffle with a bike from The Missing Link and a fee massage among the prizes. Certainly worth the (free) price of admission.
