Over 1, 000 people have attended the festival in previous years to enjoy the variety of cultural displays, entertainment and ethnic foods offered. Spend the evening in Carthage with your family and visit Germany, Egypt, Columbia, Japan, the Cherokee nation and a variety of other cultures. The event will be hosted by Brian Hamman & Lauren Hieger from KODE Action 12 News and will feature such acts as Middle Eastern Belly Dancers, Lamuel Sheppard and Kufara. Opening ceremonies start at 3 p.m. with a flag ceremony from the Boy Scouts followed by a Native American prayer ceremony. Register for door prizes throughout the evening.
