The thunderstorms managed to hold off for the 2012 Hungry Tiger Food Festival taking place at 70 Union Square on August 11.
Restaurants from the area presented their best dishes at reasonable prices.
Aalim Belly Dance enchanted the audience with hypnotic dancing. Khya, who also makes Middle Eastern jewelry (khyamara.com), proceeded to dance with a sword, illustrating her balance and skill.
Not long after Aalim Belly Dancers, the Boston Circus Guild captivated the audience with magnificent fire performances, supported by the Somerville Arts Council.
Also showing their stuff at the event was Andrew Anselmo Origami Journeyman, Ocean Ave Pops, Vallari Martial Arts Group, The Borges Family Neighborhood Restaurant and Bakery, Dosa Temple and more.
It was a most delightful summer evening spent at the enchantingly delicious Hungry Tiger Food Festival.
