Bangladesh Day Parade March 29-30

As we all know, Los Angeles is home to many different communities, such as the approximately 50,ooo Bangladeshi-Americans who live in the city. This coming weekend, they’ll hold their second annual “Bangladesh Day Celebration with Parade,” which is really a weekend-long festival featuring stuff like authentic food and music, cultural programs, parades, speeches, and dancing. Curious about Bangla music? This is your chance to hear popular singer Momtaz (who has an awesome voice) perform live. The event is being organized by the Bangladesh Unity Federation of Los Angeles and taking place at the Shatto Rec Center and on Vermont.
