“I heard that it’s  the first time Romania has a booth at the festival. I want to thank the  people who organized this,” said Adriana Betrescu, an Arlington,  Virginia resident of Romanian origin. “(The) U.S. is a multicultural  country. And I think this is a little place to express the connections  between people from different countries.”

The event at Feature Plaza on Saturday featured traditional foods, artifacts and performances.
