Anderson International Festival Draws Crowds to WCC

On Sunday, the two-week long Anderson International Festival drew to a close at Westside Community Center. Crowds of neighbors, families, and friends congregated at WCC to see the much anticipated festival finale.  Each year, the festival chooses a theme that celebrates a different culture. In year’s past, the theme has been Russian and Celtic.  This year the theme was West African Journeys.

People congregated in the Westside Gymnasium to see traditional African clothing, eat delicious foods, learn the dances, hear the drum inspired music, and to rediscover a culture that has so greatly effected the Anderson area. For the children, there were arts and crafts and face painting to enjoy. There was also a performance by the Ohio University African Ensemble, featuring audience participation and song and dance.

The finale was a wild success, and many families are waiting eagerly to see what the AIF will bring next year.
