My top two suggestions for anyone going to UNC Charlottes annual International Festival (happening this Saturday, Sept. 25): come hungry and bring cash. With around 50 nations represented and a plentiful mound of food, arts and crafts and cultural displays, this fest is tasty, fun and educating. Plus, youll be entertained by the Parade of Nations featuring traditional attire from around the world and live music and dancing throughout the day. No passport necessary. Free admission. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Held in Barnhardt Student Activity Center at UNC Charlotte, 9201 University City Blvd. For more information, visit http://ifest.uncc.edu.
