International Student Life to host 10th annual street festival downtown

The International Student Life Office will host its 10th annual International Street Festival on College Square in downtown Athens April 12 from noon–5 p.m. This year’s theme is “Bringing the World to Athens.” Dozens of international student organizations and local community groups will sponsor informative and interactive cultural displays as well as musical and dance performances.

Visitors will have an opportunity to collect “passport” stamps from each of the countries represented. Those who collect all available stamps will receive a ticket for a prize drawing. A “Children’s Corner” will allow young guests to color international paper dolls, create their own flags, craft African necklaces, place their handprints on a large world map and get their faces painted. Door prizes and giveaways will be available from local sponsoring businesses. There is no cost to attend the festival.
More information about the festival is available by phone, (706) 542-5867, or online,
