Past International Night Events
International Night was once again a great success this year with close to 300 children and their families filling the Multipurpose room for the festivities. Fourteen countries participated in the program, each hosting a booth presenting their individual traditions. Visitors learned about the different cultures, sampling food and inspecting the colorful displays on the tables. Children traveled from country to country getting their passports stamped hoping to secure a small prize.
Dances from Indonesia, Polynesia and India were performed by participants. There was a Kung Fu demonstration, traditional folk dances from China, and a fashion show from Vietnam that followed. There was a costume parade as well, with participants presenting their national attire on stage for the audience.
