Get ready for a culturally intriguing evening and lots of fun activities Saturday from 3 to 7 p.m. in the May Room of Wilson Commons

The Association for the Development of Interest in The Indian Subcontinent proudly presents its South Asian Expo, an interactive cultural fair which aims to educate and excite the mind.

The fair will feature booths highlighting the history, music, fashion, language, religion, art and sports of the Indian subcontinent. Here’s your chance to get some temporary body art, get your palm read and watch a fashion show.

“We are providing a good forum so students can get to know a little bit more about the culture.” senior and business manager of ADITI Aparna Kumar said. “You can come and ask questions that pertain to you and that interest you.”

Students will also be showcasing their talents through instrumental and dance performances every fifteen minutes, including Bhangra and Dandia during the afternoon. An added bonus to South Asian Expo this year is the guest appearence of D’Motions, the Spanish and Latino Students’ Association and other UR groups who will be presenting their own culture.

“It’s to show how all these different groups can all come together, but also to show how we are unique,” Kumar said.

Admission to this event is free for the general public, but India Palace will be selling South Asian snacks throughout the afternoon, so be sure to bring some spending money. There is also a small fee for some of the activities such as palm reading and body art.

The fun doesn’t stop here. There will be an after party at the Drama House where you can bust a move to some great music. The after party is free too, so be sure to get out and have a great time.
