EASTERN SHORE AFRAM FESTIVAL
February 8, 2011

But here is my synopsis of the 2010 Eastern Shore AFRAM Festival.

After a year long of planning and praying the AFRAM's Dream Team can truly say that we have witnessed miracle after miracle. Starting with the picture perfect weather that we seem to have prayed for at every meeting. Not the mention the numerous Sponsors that poured into this hopeful event.
A bountiful "THANK You" goes to each one of our SPONSORS....

Without their continued support this extraordinary event would not be possible. The highlight of the Parade was the Phenomenal Procession of AFRAM's Unity~Success~Diversity & Pride march down the streets of this fine City of Seaford. I can truly say my vision, hopes & dreams for the Festival has come alive!!!
2010 Festival had a new layout this year which seem to give us more romping room at Nutter Park...which means we will be there a few more years at least. It was so rewarding to kick back and hear the soulful sounds of Gospel, Rhythm & Blues, Hip~Hop,Reggae & Jazz . T
he Festival goers seem to like the wide variety of Ethnic food: Oxtails, Curry Goat, Pulled Pork, BQ Chicken, Ribs, Fried Fish, Greens, Roasted Corn, Funnel Cakes and Sweet Potato Pie, I gained 4 1/2 pounds over the weekend. LoL
In spite of the recession; the 2010 AFRAM Festival had over 70 vendors including: Cultural Vendors selling African Fabrics,Art & jewelry, as well as; 30 Non~profits Organization providing priceless information to the community.
Ms Regina Batson, a retired Gym Teacher from the Seaford School District came out of retirement to have an old fashion Field Day with nearly 50 youth.
The Dream Team honored our Grand Marshall and the 1st AFRICAN~AMERICAN to be elected to the Seaford School Board; Gladys Briggs. It would take another Edition of the Sussex post to tell all. about the explosive time had by all at the 2010 EASTERN SHORE AFRAM Festival.
