Centennial Park returns to cultural roots with Celebration

The Tennessean published this article about Saturday's Celebration of Cultures, which featured international food, merchandise, and cultural demonstrations and drew a crowd of approximately 10,000.

The event was held in Centennial Park, which hosted the Tennessee Centennial and International Exposition in 1897. That exposition featured various cultures and their performing arts, including Cuba, Egypt, China, Spain and Holland.
