This Friday, May 4th from 6-8 p.m. is the second Multicultural Night at Lincoln High in the cafeteria. The cost is $10 for adults, $5 for students and outside of school kids. There will be different kinds of performances and food from a variety of cultures that exist at LHS.

According to Amy Stotts, the ELL advocate at Lincoln High, the Multicultural Night was created last year as an idea to bring different clubs, mostly ELL clubs, at LHS together. Last year, it wasn’t as organized mostly because it was the first time, but it was still a huge success that they want to do it this year as well.

When it comes to the food, the menu has all you want. So, you can have whatever, as much as you want, and enjoy the performances. There would be dishes like Egg Rolls, Banh Bot Loc (Vietnamese clear dumplings), Vietnamese street pizza, Middle Eastern dishes (Dolma, biryani, and fried Kultilk), fried noodles, and Tostadas de Tinga de Pollo. Drinks include Horchata and Vietnamese Iced Coffee.

The Performances are set as: KZK club is doing traditional dance and fashion show. World Music Drumming is singing and drumming. Lincoln High – Mexican Folklore Group is doing traditional Mexican dance. The Lynx dance club will be performing a dance. And they will end the evening with the Middle Eastern club doing Chobi, a famous Iraqi dance.

Other than having amazing food and watching different cultural performances, Stotts is very excited to see what the student bring this year.

“Surprisingly, students who wouldn’t volunteer in class have stepped up to work and perform,” Stotts said. “It’s like they feel comfortable,  at home.”

LHS is known for its diversity and once again Multicultural students will prove that by sharing their variety of cultures.
