Food festival

Dear Editor: Kudos to the chamber and the city for a very successful International Food Festival that was held this past Saturday. As a lifelong resident, I have never seen such a huge turnout for an event such as this.

The streets were packed with Downey residents (and probably others). It was a tremendous success and looked well-planned with layout and activities. It seemed like a giant block party where you saw all your friends from town.

Now since I didn’t see a particular country represented,  may I say you have all of next month to schedule it...Oktoberfest!
