Red and yellow, black and white were all welcomed to the Race Unity Day picnic at Wilshire Trails Park by the Baha’i faith of Hall County.

Race Unity Day took place Sunday and is a concept local Baha’i community members have celebrated at Longwood Park or Wilshire Trails Park for at least the past 10 years, said Baha’i community member Carol Hendrix.

"It’s about getting all the races and cultures together in fellowship and having good eats and having fun," Hendrix said.

Hendrix, an Alto resident, said the followers of the relatively new 164-year-old faith rejoice in the diversity of humanity and the unity of mankind.
