Illinois Central College’s international students will host the 13th Annual International Fair on Sat., April 22 from noon to 3 p.m. in the Cafeteria on the East Peoria Campus. The event is open to the public and will offer an opportunity to get to know international students and celebrate their cultures through music, entertainment, food samples and dancing.
A group of international students also will feature a fashion show of traditional costumes modeled by ICC students. Other entertainment will include dancing and a martial arts demonstration. A few of the countries providing informational booths and food samples include Tanzania, China, Jordan and Egypt.
Families are encouraged to attend to learn about and appreciate world cultures while having fun together. Global Village of Peoria Heights will offer a selection of coffees, chocolates, clothing and gifts from developing countries for purchase.
There is an admission donation of $3, and children under 10 are admitted free. Food samples will be available at a modest cost. Proceeds will go toward an International F-1 student scholarship fund.
