Teachers in the area have sent their students to the festival to enhance their curriculum in language arts, foreign languages and social studies. Wise choice!

Food court
Any festival is not complete without a variety of delicious food! We not only have food, but offer many ethnic cuisine--Chinese, Indian, Filipino, and Thai. Or American Boston butt sandwiches, grilled corn, and brownie bites by Culinary Concepts. Yum, my mouth is getting watery!
