SomerStreets Carnaval Festival, Somerville 
Neighborhood Counseling and Community Services was present at the SomerStreets Carnaval festival on East Broadway in Somerville on Sunday June 4, 2017.  This is the second time NCCS was there, and we had a great time!  Lots of great food and wonderful music and dance groups from Brazil, the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America.

NCCS was on hand to offer kids and families a chance to paint lifesize kids' shaped cutouts - or just paint whatever they wanted on giant rolls of paper.  We were inspired by the creativity of all who participated!
