Morrisville, NC- The multi-cultural gods were smiling on Morrisville when they delivered a picture-perfect day for the Town’s second annual East Meets West Festival in Saturday May 17, 2014.

What a difference a year makes. Last year’s inaugural festival dawned on a dreary rainy day, the second installment was mid-70’s, low humidity and sunny, if somewhat breezy (causing more than one tent to set sail).
