A cultural celebration lights up First Fridays in downtown Aurora every September

“We’re ALL beaming with pride about another great community success, thanks to you. When we come together to celebrate Aurora’s cultural diversity, community strength, and support families, we all win. Thank you for being a champion,” said Mariana Osoria to event partners this week. Osoria is the vice president of centers with Family Focus.

The 7th annual Roots Aurora held by Family Focus was the largest yet drawing about 1,700 spectators to the event held along Water Street Mall and Agnes Mundy Park in downtown Aurora.
