Downtown Bowling Green will be a showcase for more than 50 international cultures this weekend.
The 27th annual Bowling Green International Festival is being held Saturday at Circus Square Park.
The event will feature information booths, musical performances, and food from more than 50 cultures. Festival board member Hannah Barahona says it’s a showcase for the many refugee and immigrant communities in Bowling Green.
“It’s a good opportunity for people to come learn about other cultures, and experience new things and new foods, and new music. But at the same time, we’re really unique in that we offer the international community here in Bowling Green an opportunity to showcase and share the things that are most special from their cultures.”
Barahona says the event has seen major growth since she started volunteering eight years ago.
