Two-week long Culture Fest to end

By: Beacon Staff Report
Culture Fest’s first week ended last Thursday with a celebration of African culture. South American, Central American, Caribbean and North American culture were celebrated that week.

Antarctican and Australian culture were celebrated yesterday. Events began at 12 p.m. in the Graham Center Pit with a “Survivor Game.”

Asian culture will be celebrated today in the GC Pit and a Sushi demonstration will be held later in the Pit at 4 p.m. The sushi chef will perform the demonstration until 4:30 p.m. after which students can join in and make sushi themselves.

Europeans and their customs will be viewed tomorrow. A Gypsy Magic performance will be held at 12 p.m. in the Pit and a “Camboulay Dancing Around the World” presentation will be held in the Rathskeller at 7 p.m.

The two-week-long event will come to a close on Thursday at the fountain between the Charles Perry Building, the Green Library and GC. The “Taste of the World” event will be held there at 12 p.m. Students can enter to win two tickets to Jamaica.

“Restaurants representing different parts of the world will give away free food,” Culture Fest Vice Chair Mario Sarria, Jr. said. “We have enough food to feed 250-500 people.”

The Caribbean Students Association will run the last event of Spring Culture Fest, the CSA Pageant in the GC Ballrooms at 7 p.m.
