Utica, N.Y. - Each year in the United States the Bosnian community in this country holds an annual event called the Western Bosnian Festival.
That festival travels from year to year between the cities in America that have the largest Bosnian populations, and this year it's Utica's turn to host.
Those six cities include Chicago, IL, St. Louis. MO, Detroit, MI, Ft. Wayne, IN, Waterloo, IA and Utica, NY.
Bosnians from those other five cities as well as other cities across the country and even some from Canada are in Utica this weekend.
The purpose is to show Bosnian heritage and traditions.
A big part of the festival during the day is a soccer tournament.
This year it was held at the soccer fields in East Utica on South Park Drive.
The festival will transfer indoors this evening, as a $20 per person event will be held at the Adirondack Bank Center at the Utica Memorial Auditorium that will include music and food.
