The world’s cultures were celebrated at St. Mary’s Dominican High School’s Multicultural Festival, presented by the school’s Multicultural Club during a student assembly that opened with a student fashion show featuring a colorful array of dresses from countries including South Africa, Spain, Mexico, India and Vietnam.

Martial arts demonstrations, vocal performances and hip-hop, Irish and Cuban dances were part of the annual Multicultural Festival. Returning as guest performers were students from Lafayette Academy who performed an African dance that received a standing ovation. Singer Robin Barnes, a 2005 Dominican alumna, closed the festival with the assembly joining her in song.
