The festival season is upon us here in Fort Wayne, and this weekend, it's time to celebrate the city and its rich cultural diversity with a taste of Arab Fest.

The organization's president, Rema Addrayie, is excited to welcome the community to this year's festival, and promises a full two days of family friendly activity in its Headwaters Park West location, including a return of the Dabkah dancing performances this year, and the ever-popular camel rides.
