This year will mark the 25th anniversary of Raleigh’s International Festival! The International Festival is consistentently one of the best attractions of the year in Raleigh. My family and I have enjoyed going since we moved to Raleigh. People from more than 25 countries come together to showcase bits and peices of their cultures. There is dance, the world bazaar, cooking demonstrations, art projects for the kids, a beer garden, and a naturalization ceremony. This year, more than 250 people will take their oath and gain citizenship to America! I can’t think of a better way to kick off the weekend, and hope everyone will have a chance to attend.
