This year’s festival was held April 9 at Bowman Field. Several student-run language clubs had booths with activities and food. The Spanish Club sold nachos and T-shirts, while the French Club had coloring sheets for children and a game of pin the flag on the Eiffel Tower. The Japanese Cultural Association offered traditional Japanese food at their booth. Festival attendees also learned more about the Department of Languages‘s activities for students throughout the semester.
