International Festival Mixes Cultures

America is known as the melting pot, and that was seen on the Town Commons of Greenville Saturday.

It was the 9th International Festival the city has had, and Japan, Germany, Switzerland, Jamaica, Africa, Mexico, Scotland, Bosnia-Hercegovina, and others were all represented. There was food, live music, dancing, cultural trinkets and more. But patrons were walking away with a lot more than just a full stomach, they got to appreciate different lifestyles.

Officials say more and more unique cultures take part every year.
