Bedford Embraces Diversity, the schools’ Parents Diversity Council, and Indigenous Peoples Day Bedford are collaborating on Bedford Day presentations Saturday.

The groups are sponsoring the return of Grooversity to the parade.  Grooversity, which has performed all over the world, describes itself as “an innovative and creative drumming project” that considers music “a catalyst for social change” and “global diversity awareness.’”

The ensemble is directed by Marcos Santos, a charismatic Brazilian percussionist and educator.

After marching with Grooversity, representatives of the three groups will share tent spaces at the Bedford Day street fair. A feature at their tables will be sale of samosas from Holi, which is a Bedford Embraces Diversity sponsor.
