It was a celebration of countries and cultures at the University of Maine Saturday.The annual Culturefest took place.The event goes along with International Week which runs from the first of the month until the fourteenth.Everyone was welcome at the festival.Those in attendance could dance to traditional songs, taste international food and see the different clothing and styles from around the world.Karen Boucias is the Director of International Programs at UMaine.She says it’s important to offer such a great educational tool on culture to the university and community.” We’ve seen increases in our students studying abroad and every year as we go out and recruit students for the university we know that more and more high school students have traveled. And we know that more people from other countries have settled in Maine.”To find out about other events taking place during International Week you can call the office of International Programs at 581-2905
