Locust Valley celebrates diverse community and traditions at International Night

The Locust Valley Central School district showcased its diverse and active community at the second annual International Night on March 6.

More than 100 guests went on a journey through different cultures’ customs, cuisines, music and games at the Locust Valley High School cafeteria. 23 different countries were represented at tables where guests could visit and check off items in the mock passports that were handed out that challenged guests to do things such as learn a word in a different language, taste a new food or meet a new friend.

High school and middle school students also showed their incredible talents, as the Italian Club performed “That’s Amore” and the dance “La Tarantella,” the Greek Club performed “The Kofto” and student Carlos Samayoa performed “Lamento Boliviano.”

Students also sold pins and magnets with a design created by middle schooler Harlow Gaffner to help fund their next Habitat for Humanity build later this year.
