Toledo’s 12th annual International Festival was held in Oak Shade Grove on Saturday.
The goal of the event every year is to increase cultural understanding and to showcase different nationalities.
“Culture is very important,” said Kevin Ruedy, President of Toledo’s German-American Festival Society, who helped organize the event. “America, we’re the melting pot of the world, and everyone, from all of their backgrounds, have a reason to celebrate it. This gives them time to show it off.”
