Title: Queens Borough President's 2nd. Annual Immigrant H
Details: Queens Borough President Helen M. Marshall is proud to host her second annual Immigrant Heritage Week event, celebrating the diversity of Queens, the most multi-ethnic county in New York City. This year's event, "Hats Off to You! A Celebration of Head Coverings from Around the World in Queens," will focus on the hats and head coverings that have religious, cultural, and/or personal significance to Queens residents. Members of Borough President Marshall's Queens General Assembly and Immigration Task Force will share the meanings behind these hats and head coverings. The public is welcome to participate in this cross-cultural exchange as well. Audience members are encouraged to participate by sharing information about hats and head coverings that they wear to the event, and by having their photos taken for a future exhibit at Queens Borough Hall. Performances will be part of the program, and international food will be served.
