International Festival attracts crowds eager to sample international food, culture

The skies cleared, the sun shone brightly, and a cool breeze kept the air fresh and cool for the hundreds of people who turned out for the 12th annual International Festival at Immaculate Conception Church on Sunday. The streets closest to the festival were cordoned off to traffic, but that didn’t discourage attendees, who walked along traffic free streets pulling wagons or pushing carriages with youngsters eager to play the games, taste the foods and watch the shows representative of cultures from around the world.

Twenty countries from Panama to Korea were represented via their culinary offerings, while entertainment included Middle Eastern belly dancing, the swirling costumed Ballet Folklorico of Panama dancers and youngsters from local dance schools.

Adults enjoyed the variety of beers offered in the beer garden, as well as wines available at various booths. A variety of crafts were displayed and sold inside the Family Life Center. All proceeds will benefit the parish.
