ALFAZ is preparing for the 22nd edition of International Day on October 27.
The International Day, a first for the area, was created to celebrate something that Alfaz in fact celebrates 365 days of the year, thanks to its multicultural society.
This year’s edition differs from those of previous years because for the first time it will be held in Plaza Juan Carlos I in front of the Casa de Cultura instead of the Polideportivo municipal sports complex.
Sixty-four local groups and associations of all nationalities are taking part in the event, an increase of 14 on last year.
The day will begin at 10.30am, with the official inauguration at 11am and continuing until 5pm with representatives from the different groups introducing members of the public to their countries’ cuisine, music, dances and folklore.
Martine Mertens, Alfaz’s councillor for Residents of other Nationalities also asked as many of the participants and visitors to the events to come in their national costumes to add still more colour to an already colourful day.
