4 in 5 adults want their communities to hold cultural events and celebrations during the holidays that everyone can enjoy.

These events, which are typically hosted by local parks and recreation, include Diwali festivals, Menorah lightings, Winter Solstice carnivals, Christmas markets, Chinese New Year celebrations and others.

Cultural events can be inclusive and fun for all. Two-thirds of parents and millennials say it's "extremely" or "very important" to host these events in their community.

Each month, through a poll of 1,000 U.S. residents focused on park and recreation issues, NRPA Park Pulse helps tell the park and recreation story. Questions span from the serious to the more lighthearted. The survey was conducted by Wakefield Research.
