Sounds From Around The World Fill Bergfeld Park

Sounds from across the world were heard at Bergfeld Park in Tyler this afternoon.   The Tyler Together Relations Forum held its first multi-cultural festival today called Tyler Tapestry. People got to hear everything from African-American music to Jewish and Asian music. The goal of the program is to promote an appreciation for Tyler's diverse culture.

"I believe Tyler is starting to attract a lot of people that are adding to its rich tapestry of ethnicity, so we are getting a lot of Asians in here, the Jewish community is growing, the Muslim community is certainly growing," said Tyler Tapestry chairman Neal Katz. "The Hispanic community we know is getting much larger and, so we are looking for a way to embrace that and to celebrate that."  

The Tyler together race relations forum began in 1991. The group meets the last Friday of the month at the Tyler Chamber of Commerce building. The public is welcome to attend.
