International Fest brings people together
The daylong event included for the first time a parade around the square for which children dressed in clothing and costumes to represent their cultural heritage. Some of the children participating in the parade are pictured at top.

Also participating was Medina County Treasurer John Burke, who is shown below as he talks about American Indian lore with some of the festival-goers.
