Belly dancing was just one of the featured forms of entertainment at the Turkish festival. Photo hy Ashly Alberto T*H Community A piece or the Mediterranean has come to Houston Bv: Ashlv Albert! The magic of Turkey was brought to the Fish Plaza in Downtown Houston when the American Turkish Association presented its 10th Annual Turkish Festival on Oct. 14. The theme of this years festival was Hamam, the Turkish steam bath. Upon entering the festival, directly to the left was a tent that read, "Hamam." Inside the tent was a makeshift bath that displayed various elements one would need in order to enjoy an authentic Turkish bath. Those seeking relaxation were escorted to a chair where a certified masseur steamed and rubbed away their tension. Turkish towels and accessories were also made available so that visitors could take a piece of the Turkish Hamam home with them. Outside the Hamam tent, a stage was set up that featured various Turkish entertainment throughout the day such as folk dancing, belly dancing, classical music, guitar, contemporary art performances and a pop music concert. Whether festival goers were shopping at the Grand Bazaar or enjoying authentic Turkish cuisine, they could always view the entertainment on the main stage. Entertainment was also set up for the children that came to the festival. A moonwalk was set up so that the kids, or adults, could play. A magic show was also performed for the kids amusement. A fortune teller set up a table in order to read tea leaves. By reading a festival goers leaves, the fortune teller was able to predict their fortune. The festival also had plenty of food. Authentic Turkish dishes such as Pilaf (rice), Sis Kebab (chicken and beef) and Patlican Salatasi (eggplant salad) were just some of the dishes served to festival attendees. And of course, what Turkish meal is complete without the traditional pastry, Baklava. The festival helped aid in the celebration of differing cultures in Houston. Linda Canales, a senior media production major, enjoyed the celebration of different cultures. "I think the Turkish Festival exposes just one of the cultures that makes up Houston!' Canales said. The Turkish Festival is sponsored by the American Turkish Association of Houston. The ATA is a non-profit organization that promotes a better understanding between the United States and Turkey. It also aims to provide assistance to Turkish citizens living in Houston. By holding a festival that celebrates the Turkish culture, Houstonians were given the opportunity to learn more about the culture and cultivate an understanding. The American Turkish Association Folk Dance Group performed traditional Turkish dances throughout the festival. Photo by Ashly Allierto Turkish Fest 0
