BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- People of the Southern Tier will get a chance to experience various different cultures this weekend without actually traveling outside of the country.
Broome County and state leaders were joined by students of the Clann Na Cara School of Irish Dance Thursday to announce the details of the county's seventh annual Ethnic Festival.
The event will take place on Saturday at St. Michael's Church Recreation Center in Binghamton from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visitors can enjoy ethnic food, dancers and exhibits.
County officials say the festival is great way to celebrate the diversity that Broome County has to offer.
"It's important that as we continue to honor and remember our own ethnic identities, we learn about and respect the ones of others. This Ethnic Festival this Saturday will give us the opportunity to visit dozens of cultures," said Broome County Executive Debbie Preston.
Admission to the festival is free for children under 10 and $2 for adults.
