The Immaculate Conception Catholic Church’s International Festival offers glimpse into the cultural diversity of our city

 

Immaculate Conception Catholic ChurchClarksville, TN – Hundreds of people gathered for the 15th annual International Festival at the Immaculate Conception Church on Sunday afternoon to experience the variety and diversity of the cultures that make up our city.

It was very hot and humid after the previous day’s rain. That didn’t discourage attendees, who braved the scotching summer heat. You had to commiserate with the Belly Dancers who performed their numbers with bare feet on the scaldingly hot pavement. That was true dedication.
