On the 19th of August about 90 people from the community and church representing 11 cultures came together for an evening of entertainment. The evening was enhanced by ethnic food and dances by the various cultures who have made Waimakariri  their home. As the demographics in Rangiora is changing events like the international evening not only brings people together but also provides a safe platform for a deeper understanding and appreciation of the diversity that exists. Assumptions of various cultural practices, food, beliefs and, cultural barriers can be put to rest as people communicate with one another in a fun filled atmosphere. The main focus was unity in the midst of cultural diversity and it was achieved. Well done Folks.
