The International Children’s Day is a celebration of our shared diverse international culture and heritage. This is a fun-filled day of international food, art, crafts, music, folk dance, games and a parade of nations. The festival brings world geography to life through hands-on activities that give children a taste of some of the traditions of many of the countries and the rich heritage from which we came to live in America. Free entry, free parking. Learn the art form of weaving, pottery and glass making. Create sand art memories together. Journey to: Brazil, China, Japan, Israel, Mexico, Scotland, South Africa and The Czech Republic, learn all about their cultures & traditions. Have your face painted, get a henna tattoo. Ride a pony, bounce for joy or tackle an obstacle course. Savor some delicious jerk chicken or meat patties, enjoy a taco as you watch a tortilla making demonstration. Enjoy the Japanese art of Origami. Relax as you watch a medley of folk dances from around the world. Or tap your feet to the series of performers playing music from across the globe.
