ATLANTA -- Every year, the Turkish American Cultural Association of Georgia holds a celebration in honor of Children's Day.

Children's Day was started in 1920 by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, founder of the Republic of Turkey.

In Atlanta, Children's Day celebrates kids of all nationalities and ethnicities, with the hope of promoting friendship and peace among cultures.

Every participating child receives a "passport" to visit booths representing various countries, each one featuring colorful entertainment. The kids celebrate their unique qualities while hopefully making lifelong friends.

The Children's Day fun is free -- the only requirement is the desire to meet new friends.

This year's event was held Saturday at Centennial Place Elementary School in Atlanta. It was TACAGA's 20th Children's Day celebration.
