After spending some time across the pond, let the world come to you! The fourth annual International Festival returns to Lynchburg on Saturday morning. The day's events begin with the Parade of Nations at 10:30 a.m. You certainly won't be disappointed by the variety of entertainment options during this free festival as well as craft vendors and different exhibitors. Let's not forget the food! Persian, Argentinian, Mexican, Caribbean and Thai food are just some of the cuisines available. Don't wait too long to arrive, as the festival ends at 4 p.m.

When you've finished soaking in a multicultural experience, why not relax with America's pastime? May the Fourth be with you Saturday as the force is strong with this Hillcats game. Head to City Stadium for Star Wars night! Expect character appearances and fireworks in addition to the Saturday night game. Gates open at 5 p.m. with first pitch set for 6 p.m.
