Sri Lanka Day Expo 2013 was celebrated Saturday on the Third Street Promenade, which included 20 booths along the Promenade offering the best and most unique Sri Lankan foods, goods, and services.

Sri Lanka Day is an annual one-day event presented by the Sri Lanka Foundation to showcase Sri Lankan culture and businesses.

A stage near Wilshire Boulevard hosted performers during the day and a live band entertained the crowds at night. More than 100 performers took part in a fashion show and the “Parade of Lanka.”

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