The event included booths representing 10 different cultures, highlighting those cultures through traditional arts, cultural display, music, dance and perhaps the most popular aspect foods.

Rooms were often crowded with people having their ‘event passports’ stamped, taking a mock test to measure how one’s knowledge fared against a test new immigrants take, and of course enjoying the food.

A stage area provided entertainment from dragon dances to music as well.

The even began at 11 a.m. and runs until 5 p.m.
