Can't find the time or funds to travel around the globe quite yet? Never say never.

This Saturday, April 4, the University of Georgia International Student Life Office will host the 11th annual International Street Festival, “Bringing the World to Athens.”

The festival, scheduled to take place from noon to 5 p.m. in the College square downtown, will bring music, dance and cultural displays from around the world. Dozens of student organizations will be present and there is no cost involved with attending or participating in festival activities.

Visitors will have an opportunity to collect “passport” stamps from each of the countries represented; those who collect all available stamps will receive a ticket for a prize drawing.

A children’s corner will include activities such as coloring international paper dolls, creating their own flags and crafting African necklaces, to name a few.
