Hundred flock to Multicultural Night
VICTOR IZZO/SPECIAL TO THE TIMES NEWS Educating everyone about the country of Ecuador, Leticia Mercado stands ready at her exhibit on the South American nation at Penn Kidder's Multicultural Night
Hundreds of visitors came to the Penn Kidder Elementary School's Multicultural Night to learn about the 62 countries represented by the exhibits that were on display in the school's gymnasium.
All of the exhibits were the work of members of the school's seventh grade classes.
Each of these exhibits overflowed with facts, photographs, flags, maps, recipes, and something that was a real crowd-pleaser, samples of ethnic foods distinctive to each country.
In this way, those who visited and participated in the evening's event could see first-hand, the differences or similarities in the diversity of cultures from all parts of our world.
To add an extra touch of realism to their country's cultural display, some students even dressed up in apparel distinctive to that country.
