It is my personal opinion that every American should try to visit another country at least once to see firsthand what it is like outside our bubble. Luckily for the many of us who can’t afford plane fare, this weekend sees the return of WorldFest, which takes place downtown on the Belvedere (located just north of the intersection of 5th and Main Streets.)

At WorldFest you can sample ethnic food, see a parade showcasing the diversity of our fellow global citizens, shop at booths selling arts and crafts from many countries, and see almost endless music and dance performances from around the world. Also taking place is the annual naturalization ceremony, where “hundreds of people will take their U.S. oath of citizenship.”

This festival is free to attend, and takes place from September 2-4. It is open each day from 11 AM to 11 PM.

About Allan Day

There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
