Columbus City Council will host an illumination event in observance of Somali Independence Day. Last year, Councilmember Shayla Favor participated in the inaugural Somali Independence Day illumination ceremony where more than 200 residents came to celebrate.
“Over the years, Columbus’ Somali population has grown and thanks to the economic and cultural contribution of Somali-American residents, our city continues to thrive. I am honored to recognize and celebrate this important occasion again this year”, said Councilmember Favor.
City Hall will be illuminated blue and white in observance of Somali Independence Day and will be followed by a flag raising ceremony at the Ohio Statehouse, on Friday, July 1.
