At 7:30 pm we will move to the Gym for cultural presentations, featuring a kids' parade of traditional costumes and performances by Burbank/Belmont students. The are excited to top off the evening with a colorful "main stage" performance by our guest musicians, the Yanvalou Drum and Dance Ensemble.  The ensemble is a Wellesley College student/faculty group that performs folkloric music and dance of Africa as it exists today throughout the African Diaspora.
