Leesylvania State Park to Host Multi-Cultural Festival

(Woodbridge, Va.) - Leesylvania State Park hosts a celebration of the diverse cultures that live, work and play in Northern Virginia, Oct. 13, 2007.

The second annual Multi-Cultural Festival is co-sponsored by Leesylvania State Park, Prince William County's Human Rights Commission and the Office on Youth.

Organizers hope to promote community unity through a day dedicated to the unique customs and traditions of different cultures. Cultural diversity will be celebrated through food, entertainment and crafts from around the world, including Bolivian dance, Latin music and a performance of the ancient Chinese custom of purging evil spirits.

The festival is from 12-5 p.m. and there is a $5 parking fee.
