The International Cultural Center, the World Student Association of Tiffin University and the World Student Union of Heidelberg University are sponsoring the 1st Annual International Festival for Children on Sunday, March 25 from 1:00-4:00 pm at Tiffin Middle School. Children will have an opportunity to participate in over 20 different activities, games and craft projects representing more than a dozen countries. International students from TU and Heidelberg as well as a number of local families will be on hand to share their knowledge and celebrate their culture with the children who visit the festival.
Ireland, one of Tiffin's heritage cultures, will be showcased this year through Celtic stories, dance and music. "Celebrating Ireland" will feature storyteller Judy Donnan, from Fremont, who will excite the children with her Irish tales and Calvert High School graduate Victor Welsch who will provide Celtic tunes as a roving bagpiper. Visitors will also have an opportunity to enjoy a wee bit of Irish step dancing courtesy of Delaney Celtic Dance, from Defiance.
The festival is a wonderful opportunity for the entire family to enjoy a fun and educational afternoon. Admission is free and the event is open to the public.
