Labor Day weekend, September 2-5, Louisville, Ky. celebrated its 14th annual WorldFest. It is the area’s prominent international festival, which brings various cultures together and celebrates the differences that make them unique. WorldFest is a way for individuals to leave the comfort of what is known and embrace the unknown. It’s an opportunity to experience Germany, Greece, or wherever without having to spend loads of money on a plane ticket.

On Saturday, September 3, 2016, Locals strutted their stuff in the Parade of Cultures. The parade stared behind Metro Hall (527 W. Jefferson) and travel northbound on 5th across Main and Market streets and up the Belvedere. The parade gave people of different ethnicities a way to embrace their heritage and share it with those of dissimilar ones. All groups were encouraged to wear the traditional outfit of their native country.
