The new city hall of Homestead is a stunning structure. The building itself is a symbol of renovation, progress, and pride.

The cultural diversity of the Homestead community was on display during the event, which was well-organized in a fair-like atmosphere. Children and families of many cultures were enjoying free refreshments, hot dogs, pop corn, and cotton candy while learning about the many types of community and governmental agencies that all work together to serve the public and make Homestead great.
