Celebrate your heritage at the International Spring Festival

March 23, 2012 by  

The 21st annual International Spring Festival will take place on April 21 at North Penn High School from 11am – 5pm. Admission is free. The event is presented by the Lansdale Public Library.

The theme of this year’s festival is “Americans celebrating their heritage.” Over 24 countries will be represented including China, Argentina, Egypt, Ireland, India and Venezuela. Over 5,000 visitors attended last year’s festival and enjoyed over 131 exhibits. Vendors receive a free table and pay $25 for each additional table needed. It is up to them to decorate their area to attract visitors. They may be wise to arrange Lansdale printing companies to provide them with items such as banners and signs to dress up their area.

The International Spring Festival will kick off with a parade of nations. The festival will consist of ethnic and cultural performances, foods from around the world, and vendor displays. There will also be lots of fun for the kids; they can take part in the passport program and have them stamped at various stations, they can try on ethnic costumes, try ethnic foods, learn to play various instruments from around the world, and they can take part in art projects. For the adults, there will be educational displays and free health screenings. Vendors will also be selling souvenirs and international foods. Among the musical performers will be the Voloshky’s Ukrainian Dance Ensemble and the Universal African Dance and Drum Ensemble.
