D'Evelyn Multicultural Night

I was expecting the cafeteria to have about 10 countries represented and maybe 40-50 attendees.  At first I was pleasantly surprised and then overwhelmed by the 20+ countries represented and easily 400+ attendees.  I wish I would have taken notes for this blog post.  In addition to India, Nepal, Afghanistan, China, Philippines, Austria, Mexico, Israel, Palestine, Chile come to mind.

Table were set up and students and parents shared cultural items, pictures, wore traditional dress and in a lot of cases served snacks and desserts.

After an hour of milling about, the event moved from the cafeteria to the gymnasium for song, dance and finally a fashion show.

Given the success of this initial event, I could very much see this being an annual event.
