A plethora of cafes, demonstrations, exhibitions, dances, and music will fill the Saint Paul RiverCentre starting today as a multitude of people come together to celebrate more than 90 ethnic groups. Serving as a unique opportunity to celebrate, learn, and share traditions and customs through food, music, arts, and dance from such a large scale of cultures, the Festival of Nations is an eye-opening cultural experience for any age.
