Independence Day in Humboldt Park

India celebrated its Independence Day this Friday the 15th. I wanted Asha to experience a little bit of India but wasn’t feeling too crazy about driving all the way to Devon Street for the parade. Luckily, my friend Linda told me about a Natya dance performance right around the corner in Humboldt Park.Β  Humboldt Park usually only seems to get negative news coverage but this summer I’ve made it a point to check out all the amazing things going on there including not just this Natya but also Shakespeare in the Park. There is also a beach, tennis courts, gym, baseball fields, and amazing lagoons and gardens for further exploring.

Linda, her husband Mike, Asha, and I walked the few blocks to the Field-house in the park to see the dance. whichΒ had already started by the time we got there. I parked the stroller at the back of the room and let Asha loose. I think she had a great time watching the performers, the musicians, and the audience who was more than gracious to just let her walk all up and around them.
I think Asha had a good time and I am proud to have shared a piece of my heritage with her. Jai Hind!
