Diversity on display at UWindsor's Celebration of Nations

The world will be on display at the University of Windsor this Thursday.

The 14th annual Celebration of Nations will feature a variety of performances, demonstrations, and food highlighting the University’s diversity.

“The Celebration of Nations is a great event that showcases the diversity of the University of Windsor and teaches us more about the world,” said Beth Oakley, Celebration of Nations co-chair.

“This year we’re especially excited by the students who have come forward to share a taste of their culture.”

The celebration starts at noon with a flag parade leaving from the Welcome Centre. The procession will make its way along Turtle Island Walk toward the CAW Student Centre. Thursday’s mild weather promises to be perfect for a parade.

The arrival of the flag parade will kick off the afternoon’s festivities of poetry readings, singing, dancing, feasting, and more.

“The more we can share our unique cultures, the more we can celebrate the things that unite us,” Oakley said.

Volunteers are still being accepted for the flag parade; those interested are encouraged to email nations@uwindsor.ca.
