I've lived in Philly, pretty much my whole life and I've never been to the Odunde Festival. The Festival is the largest and most long-standing African American street festival in the nation. There's vendors where you can buy African sculptures, masks and furniture. There's also jewelry and tubs and tubs of pure Shea Butter ! Of course, there is food and live performers! Ah, it was fun. I went with my cousin Shanisha and her son Amir and my friend Lizzie. We had a pretty good time.
