The Krisle Elementary Cultural Fair, which was held on March 14th was a success and was appreciated by the many families who came to visit. The countries that were represented are China, Cuba, India, Egypt, Australia, South Korea, Japan, France, Jamaica, Guatemala, Mexico, Italy, Estonia, Greece, Pacific Islands, Africa, El Salvador, and the United States.

The fair was organized by the cultural committee at Krisle as a way to celebrate and learn about different countries and cultures around the world. Visitors to our cultural fair had an opportunity to taste foods or drink different types of teas from various countries, play games, watch and interact with a dance performance, listen to music and much more. We would like to make this event a yearly event and invite all from the community to attend.
