On August 21st, the Bayview neighborhood welcomed neighbors, friends and guests at the festival, which featured cultures of the world performances, ethnic foods, children's activities, a photo exhibit, a silent auction, arts and crafts, and many more.
The Capital City Hues bi-weekly newspaper is a multi-culturally owned, written and read newspaper published in the greater Madison area. The paper is titled Hues because Hues represents the concept that while everyone is of distinct colors — with a lot of hues in between — everyone is part of the larger band of light. The Capital City Hues wants to promote the respect for all people.
In order to celebrate their first five years of existence, The Capital City Hues decided to throw a five-year anniversary party with the theme "The Hues Alive at Five: Celebrating Our Communities of Color."
