On Saturday November 13th, Richland County sponsored an International Flavors Festival that featured the many cultures and nationalities represented in Richland County. It was held on Decker Boulevard due to this being the official International Corridor of the county. There was entertainment, food, and displays that represented many different nationalities. The event was kicked off with a parade that featured some of the local politicians, including myself. Richland School District Two also provided entertainment to include the Conder Dance Troop and the Conder Steel Drum Band. Richland Two is a very diverse school district. Our students speak over 55 different languages! It is important to recognize and celebrate the things that make us different as well as the same. This festival highlighted that fact in a tangible way.
