A Taste of Africa in Woodbury

Crossroads Church, 5900 Woodbury Drive in Woodbury, will hold a "Taste of Africa" on Wednesday, Aug. 19 from 6:30 to 9 p.m.

The community is invited for a family night adventure to the African continent's mixed cultures, history, art and song with the sights, sounds, scents and products of the native people of Africa.

Various African countries will be highlighting the differences and similarities of their cultures in an entertaining, informal setting.

Performers will share the beats, rhythm and song of Africa; traditional dress will be displayed in a fashion show; and a storyteller "will transport you to a land far away to discover how the zebra got it's stripes."

Products for sale in the marketplace will feature items from different African countries, and the food court will feature African delicacies.
