Eat and dance around the world at the Rotary Club’s 6th Annual Global Community Day, Oct. 6

Eat, dance and experience several international cultures without leaving the Capital City. The BR Capital City Rotary Club, BREC and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana invite you to join them for another wonderful Global Community Day Celebration.

The fun takes place on Sunday, October 6 from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Find the activity at the BREC Community Park on Highland Road. Also, the event is free and open to the public.

Guests of all ages are invited to explore cultural exhibits. Try your hand at identifying international flags. Or, just snack your way around the world by trying the ethnic foods.

Visitors will get a free World Visitor Pass to travel from country to country. They will learn about the different nations and get their passes stamped. No real passports are necessary to enjoy this travel experience!

Besides the games, stick around for the dances. Members of Baton Rouge’s international community dress in traditional garb to perform their nation’s customs.
