Tempting aromas beckon as you collect your complimentary passport and immerse yourself in an atmosphere rich with taste, sound, texture, and color. Everyone comes for the food and stays for the entertainment. Rightly so. In addition to more than 10 live acts, well-known media personalities present Interactive International Trivia in TV-game-show style. Prize packages are both appetizing and useful (think pizza to tire alignments). Parade float winners and the "I Love Parade of Nations" Grand Prize Chicago Getaway winner are announced during the course of the afternoon. Stick around, savor the flavors, and immerse yourself in faraway worlds close to home.
From toe-tapping Copper Country clogging to dazzling Bollywood Glam, this multicultural entertainment spectacle features legends and lore galore, a glittering array of dance, music, and theatrical performances.
The festival begins when the parade arrives at the Dee Stadium in Houghton at noon and continues until 3 p.m.
