'Taste of Culture' Festival Ends Summer Run

Roanoke, VA - Roanoke's Local Colors ended their summer long run of highlighting different cultures once a month to the lunch time crowd.

Friday the Swedish Club of the Roanoke Valley teamed up with the Sons of Norway for a Scandinavian festival downtown.

It's all a part of the "Taste of Culture" series.

The festival promotes different foods, crafts and other cultural goodies.

"We're anxious to show the people all of the cultures we have. Do you know we have 103 countries residing here in the Roanoke Valley? So to introduce people about their culture we have this taste of culture series," said Pearl Fu, the longtime director of Local Colors.

You can check out some more local colors in Roanoke's Elmwood Park on Sunday with the Latino Festival from noon until 6 p.m.
