The public is invited to attend the eighth annual Magic Valley Refugee Day at the College of Southern Idaho soccer field on Falls Avenue at 6 p.m. Friday, June 16.
Coordinated by the CSI Refugee Center, the event features music, singing and dancing from the various ethnic populations that have relocated to southern Idaho for many years. The groups will have displays, information about their home countries, and samples of their foods. The annual event celebrates the diversity in our community as well as recognizing and thanking area residents for their support and help in relocating displaced families throughout the year.
Admission is free of charge and everyone is welcome. Those who attend are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets for sitting on the lawn. For more information, contact the CSI Refugee Center at 736-2166.
The CSI soccer field is located behind Eagle Hall dorms. Plenty of parking is available in the CSI lot next to Falls Avenue.
