The photos in this post were taken at the 2011 Potho Mela.

Bangladeshi Street Festival
Sunday, August 26th, noon to 6:00 p.m.

Kensington's 7th Annual Potho Mela (street festival/street fair) will fill the street with happy people, the sound of joyful music and singing, the movement of graceful dancers, the taste of a variety of Bangladeshi foods, and dozens of vendors selling jewelry, clothing, crafts, music CDs, toys, and other items. The mela is organized by the Church McDonald (Bangladeshi) Business Association, which describes it as the "Biggest Bangladeshi Street Festival in USA."

Celebrate Bangladeshi traditions and culture this Sunday on McDonald Avenue, from Church Avenue to Avenue C.
