KAMLOOPS – If you’re looking to get a taste of other cultures without leaving town you’re in luck, the annual International Days event is set to take place this week.

The event is scheduled to take place at Thompson Rivers University Friday afternoon and international students will share their culture with the community through food, dance, fashion and music.

To learn about the international students and their individual countries at TRU, students will have exhibits to show off what they’d like you to learn about where they’re from. Attendees are encouraged to check out the booths and ask students questions to learn more.

At 3 p.m. showcase performances will take place at the TRU gymnasium where students will demonstrate dances or routines that reflect their talents and culture. This year students and staff will put on more than 25 performances. In addition to the performances and exhibits, students will show off international styles in the fashion show.

Beyond the bright visuals, unique sounds and learning something new, visitors will also be treated to new and intriguing tastes with the event’s food fair.

The event is open to the public. If you can't make the event, you can watch it online at www.tru.ca/internationaldays.
