This jubilee was the place to be!

The 38th Annual Brighton Jubilee on Aug. 24 was filled with food, live music, vendors, and thousands of attendees. Hosted by the Brighton Neighborhood Association and Kiwanis International, this yearly event was the best one yet, according to one community member.

“The jubilee was exciting this year,” said Salvina Lukyanovsky, who attended the event with her co-workers from Caring Professionals, a home care agency. “The music was really good.”

But Lukyanovsky really ate up another part of the festival — the specialty food, including one dish that really stuck out.

“A big shish kabob — it was really good,” she said.

One area resident, who attended the event with her daughter, said her kids’ favorite part of the day was visiting the vendors — especially at the sparkly stations.

“She really liked the jewelry stations,” said Jane Bartashnik about her daughter Angelina.

But Bartashnik said the best part of her day was seeing the whole neighborhood interact as one.

“Seeing the community come together — that was interesting,” said Bartashnik.
