"Everyone meets up, eats, listens to music, dances and is happy," says Kadouri Salam. He was one of thousands of visitors that attended ABK's Cultural Day on Saturday.

Kadouri Salam lives in Gamlegården. He summarises the Cultural Day well, that it’s a festival. The children play and enjoy soft drinks and candy floss. The adults talk happily. And the entertainment from the stage adds to the atmosphere.

– It’s very nice and great here, says Muntasser Shaher, who lives in Egna Hem. He is with his daughter Mabelle Shaher, two and a half years’ old. She chews on a cob of corn. It has been barbecued by Salam Kadouri.

– Ten crowns, ten crowns, he calls out to everyone who passes by.

Anders Tell (S), opposition leader in the municipality, usually attends the cultural day. The party has its own tent.

– It's fun. There are many people, many meetings and conversations and good food, he says.
