OWENSBORO, Ky. (WFIE) - The HydroFair wasn’t the only event drawing large crowds this weekend in Owensboro.

The 24th annual Multicultural Festival took place just a couple of miles away from the riverfront.

Hundreds of people attended the festival held at First Presbyterian Church.

This year’s event featured a representation of cultures from Tanzania, Bolivia, India, Cyprus, Cuba and more.

The People’s Parade led by the bagpipes walked around the festival grounds to celebrate unity and diversity. Food vendors represented a variety of cuisines, and more than 50 exhibit booths highlighted world cultures and community organizations.

The event welcomed people from all backgrounds and ways of life, and many of them shared pieces of their culture with the crowds.

There were also cultural performances and music at the festival.
