Supervisor Judi Bosworth, Council Member Viviana Russell, and the Town Board are pleased to announce that the Town will be partnering with Nassau County Legislator Siela Bynoe, Espoir Youth Program, and the non-profit organization “AKA” Haitians Support Haitians to host the annual Haitian Flag Day celebration.
The free event will be held on Saturday, May 18 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the “Yes We Can” Community Center in Westbury.
The event will be to highlight musical performances by Djarara, DJ Jakido, and Etcetera. Also on hand will be cultural vendors and food.
Haiti’s flag’s origin is tightly linked to a history of the struggle for freedom and so the Haitian Flag Day celebration has become a major celebration of pride and sovereignty.
