As a part of Chandler's 17th annual Multicultural Festival, 150 people will become U.S. citizens Saturday at 11 a.m. at the festival's third annual naturalization ceremony.
The annual festival is part of the Celebration of Unity, a series of events held around Martin Luther King, Jr. day to recognize his spirit and ideals, along with heritage, diversity and the civil rights movement.
Phoenix Field Office Director John M. Ramirez will administer the oath and Chandler Mayor Jay Tibshraeny will give laudatory remarks. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration services will be administering the legal part of the ceremony.
