休斯敦國际區成立迄今已經有十五年之歷史， 在十三英里的範圍內， 目前我們有近九百家各型中小企業， 國際行政區之成立，全面改變了整個社區之面貌 ，不但吸引了許多中小企業， 也改善了社區治安及規劃 ，今天當你們走進國際區時，可以目睹亞裔、 拉丁裔之各類餐廳商店及宗教寺廟及教堂， 更重要的是我們已經把此當成了自己的家園。
今天我們和休斯敦市民及生活在國際區的兄弟姐妹們一起參加國際區文化大遊行， 除了顯示故國多彩文化之外 ，更是傳遞美國是個世界种族之大熔爐。
遊行車隊及表演儀隊自上午九時從美南新聞廣場出發，途經百利大道向西行到艾利學區， 參加人數超過一千多人， 共有近百輛花車在街上載歌載舞。
我們非常慶幸生活在這塊土地上的人， 能在此次遊行中再次展現自己的熱情和才藝， 尤其是希望疫情能早日控制住的時刻 ，大家都能再次聚集在一起。
Annual Alief International Parade
The Annual Alief International Parade started today at the International Trade Center this morning. The event has been sponsored by the Alief Community Association for the last several years.
This event truly represents the diverse ethnic groups in our city. In this international community we have had many newcomers from all over the world. They come here to start new businesses and share their heritage.
Since the International District was founded in this thirteen square mile area, we now have grown to almost 900 businesses. We have improved the environment and the safety of the area to promote and attract new business. More and more people now have come over and settled down here and call it their home.
We also very much appreciate our community leader Marie Lee. She was the one who has been behind this annual event and makes it all possible.
When we look at our country and today’s world that is facing big challenges, we all need to unite to serve our community and help each other.
We are here to congratulate the big success of the Annual Alief International Parade. This event really represents our love of this land we call home.
