Vikings Celebrate Their Culture

Vikings+Celebrate+Their+Culture

This past week, Pleasant Valley hosted Multicultural Week. Multicultural Week has many cultures which  parade around with lots of different varieties of food, flavors, and excitement. Games were held, along with music and dancing. All sorts of cultural activities took place, including religious dances.  Senora Topete even made homemade churros. People waited in line for more than 40 minutes for the warm and gooey churros. At the end of the lunch period, many people were left sad and hungry without a churro.

Some students wanted to represent their culture, not just for the cultural festival, but for the whole day. One student in particular, named Cleo Regh, wore a beautifully cultivated dress. Full of bright and happy colors. She says, “I dressed up in a bright orange dress with a white skirt underneath and the top comes from a village in Mexico.” “There was also a part on the side that has a special meaning, it means you are single, when you marry you may change it.”  Her culture is a mixture of European and Mexican. She also said her favorite part of cultural week was, “seeing and listening to people share their culture’s story.”

Tylee Davis, an attendee of the festival says it was fun and, “I would go again, I would have been there the whole day if I had time, it was so cute.” Daleen Bdour says, “I liked  that each culture had its own type of food, I would definitely go again next year.” Along with music and dancing, the food stood out. Some food included Thai, Filipino, and Mexican food. I tried something very interesting, it was called Ube. Ube is a type of purple sweet potato. It has a chewy sticky texture and is dark purple. I also tried Senoras Topete’s homemade churros. They were my favorite part of the entire festival, super warm and chewy with just the right amount of cinnamon flavor. If you can make it next year, try to come and bring your culture with you to the Multicultural Festival!
