The exhibits and displays highlight countries and their favorite customs, games, sports, holidays and food. In total, 21 countries will be featured including Greece, India, Mexico, Romania, and Japan, to name a few. The celebration is scheduled for 2:30 pm until 4 pm, Sunday, February 2, 2011 in the gymnasium of Morningside Elementary School at 1053 East Rock Springs Road.
