RALEIGH, N.C. -
Thousands will be at the Raleigh Convention Center this weekend for the International Festival, a popular celebration of cultures from around the world that contribute to making the Triangle so vibrant.
Be sure to stop by the WNCN booth in the heart of the event. WNCN is proud to be the media partner of the International Festival, and the station's interactive booth was a hit with visitors last year as they had a chance to meet WNCN personalities.
WNCN will livestream from its booth all weekend, and you can see yourself on TV at the booth. We'll also cut photos and get them up on WNCN.com by the end of next week.
The third and final day of the festival started Sunday at 11 a.m. An Indian Bollywood dance demonstration will close out the festival at 6 p.m., followed by a Mexican dance demonstration at 6:30 p.m.
The festival features a rich array of foods from around the world in addition to performances and booths about various countries.
The Raleigh Convention Center is located at 500 South Salisbury Street.
