NORWALK -

The third annual "NICE" festival was held at Oyster Shell Park in Norwalk on Saturday.

The festival showcased different cultures from around the world by offering unique performances, vendors and food.

Organizers say this event grows each year.

The festival honors the commitment of the Norwalk International Cultural Exchange to increase awareness of diversity, and encourage exploration of different traditions.

Janet Evelyn, of NICE, said, "The idea behind the festival is to celebrate our global footprint and our global heritage and instead of doing a festival that's targeted around one specific culture, we thought that we would bring everything together."
