After lively opening ceremonies, the Cultural Caravan will continue in the University Community Centre until Thursday.
In addition to dozens of booths presented in the atrium by numerous cultures, the caravan will feature a food fair in the Wave all week long. Each day different cultural connoisseurs will be on hand to serve up a taste of all cultures, said Christina Ferreira, coordinator of the caravan and University Students' Council international students' commissioner. Tickets for the event can be purchased at the Wave.
Tomorrow a presentation of Persian fire jumping will be held on the Concrete Beach at 6 p.m. to celebrate the Persian new year, followed by a culture show in the Wave at 6:30 p.m.. The show will present traditional and modern dances among other performances from any individual or group not affiliated with an already participating organization.
"It looks so beautiful to see all these countries represented," Ferreira said.
