Morton Grove to celebrate its cultural diversity

November 17, 2013 by  

The Passport to Morton Grove celebration is taking place this November. It is part of the series Passport to Chicagoland in which many area towns and cities are holding special events.

Morton Grove has chosen an event that will celebrate the cultural diversity that is vital to the community’s uniqueness. The event is set to feature entertainment from such groups as the Niles West Latino Club, the McNulty Irish Dancers and the Maku’aina Hula Dancers. There will also be crafts to take part in and other family-friendly activities throughout the afternoon. Each visitor to the event is issued a passport that they then have stamped at each cultural exhibit or performance; this gives them a souvenir to take home with them.

Each participating community in the Passport to Chicagoland series has plans to hold a different type of event which will highlight what is special or different about it. Other Passport events are also taking place this November in Highland Park, Skokie and Des Plaines.

When holding certain types of events in Morton Grove, organizers often invest in services from local printing companies to help them prepare. This can include flyers for advertising and program booklets. In this case, the passports might be designed and created with the help of area print companies.

The Passport to Morton Grove event will take place at the Prairie View Community Center on November 23 from 1:00 – 3:00 PM. Admission is free. For more information call 847-965-1200.
