People from various cultures will come together to celebrate heritage and diversity tonight (Tuesday) in Kincardine.
The 16th annual multicultural festival will kick-off at 5:30pm and run until 8pm at the Davidson Centre.
For the first time, a parade will be taking place where members from each participating culture will bear their flag and plant them next to the Canadian flag at the front of the building.
The event is all ages, and is free to attend. Food from all over the world will be available to sample.
Organizer Chandra Tripathi says that food is a common connector between cultures.
He says that people will travel to Kincardine from all over Bruce, Grey, and Huron counties to attend.
31 countries and cultures will be represented at the festival.
Over 1000 people attended in years past and more are expected this year.
