The annual family friendly event at Corydon, IN brought different countries at the square – World on the Square. The program starts with the Native American group presenting their patriotic march. Children pick up their passports with several questions so they can go around the globe asking about the country and learning on the way.
This event occurs the second Saturday in August. The organizers do a great job in setting up the location for the exhibitors providing cold water when it is hot and plastic covers when it rains.
Local restaurants showcase free samples of their cuisine for everyone to enjoy.
Throughout the program, there is music and entertainment. Flamenco dancers, local musicians, kids dancing, face painting, martial arts show, etc.
This is a very friendly event that introduces the locals to the world around them. People come to each booth to ask questions, learn a thing or two and mostly amazed that their city is indeed multicultural.
This is an event to look forward to every year. For more information, www.worldonthesquare.org.
