Food, Entertainment from Around the World at Parade of Nations Saturday
Ever eaten Moroccan food? Food from Bangladesh? How about Turkey? Those are just a few of more than 20 nations whose cuisines you can sample at the Multicultural Festival at Dee Stadium, following the annual Parade of Nations on Saturday.
Admission is free; meals or snacks can be purchased at the food booths.
During the Multicultural Festival, entertainers representing many countries and traditions will perform on a raised stage. They include the Kivijat Dancers, cloggers, music and Bollywood dancers from the Michigan Tech Indian Students Association, Bells on the Bay—a group of handbell performers—Jan Arnold, a singer who accompanies herself on the guitar, the Michigan Tech Dance Squad and Bob Hiltunen, a singer who plays guitar, bass and keyboards. The Michigan Tech Pep Band will march in the Parade.
A family trip to Chicago will be the top prize in a drawing at the Dee. To enter, spectators need to hold up “I Love Parade of Nations” signs during the parade.
This year's headline act is Breaksk8, a professional jam-skating team that likes to push the limits of dancing with wheels under their shoes.
