Multicultural Fair educates hundreds

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -- Bringing a bit of flavor to the weekend, Siouxlanders got the chance to take a trip around the world, but barely had to leave home.

About 800 people were entertained with food and dance at the Longlines Family Recreation Center at the Sioux City Human Rights Commission's Multicultural Fair.

Local groups representing cultures from around the globe dressed the part to educate and inspire.

The commission says an event like this is important as we continue to see a more diverse population grow in Sioux City.

"It has increased, especially over the last 5 or 10 years, with different nationalities coming into Sioux City where 20 years ago, that wasn't the case," says Art Fiugroa.

The event is also a chance for the Human Rights Comission to inform people about opportunities and issues in the community.
