UWMC hosts multi-cultural fair


UW-Marathon County celebrated cultures around the world Saturday. It was hosted by the school's Multi-Cultural Resource Center.

The theme of the day was based on the Japanese Cherry Blossom Festival. Organizers estimate 500 people took part in the event.

They say it is about exposing other cultures to people that may not get the chance to any other way.

"My main objective is to showcase what we have in the community, allow people in the community to have a chance to show who they are, and also bring kids and expose them to these cultures," said Multi-Cultural Resource Center Director Theodore Ceplina.

The event featured about 30 different cultures and included authentic food for people to try.
