Sri Lanka Day Expo 2012 returns this Saturday, Aug. 25 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. at Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade.

Sri Lanka Day is an annual one-day event presented by Sri Lanka Foundation to showcase Sri Lankan musicians, dancers, food, and businesses.

Since the first event in 2006, Sri Lanka Day has grown to become the largest event promoting Sri Lanka and Sri Lankan culture in U.S.A.

A stage near Broadway has performances from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. while more than 20 booths along the Promenade will offer the best and most unique Sri Lankan foods, goods and services to the visitors attending Sri Lanka Day.

At 4 p.m. the “Pageant of Lanka” parades through the Promenade with beautifully dressed Sri Lankan performers and theatre elephants. There will also be a Costume Parade with traditional and colorful Sri Lankan clothing.
