"Those who attend will have the opportunity to experience the world in one night, without even leaving Pittsburg."   

Admission is $2 at the door. Food samples will be served from 5 to 6:45 p.m. in the lobby and art gallery as supplies last for $1 each, cash only. The free cultural show will begin on stage in the Linda and Lee Scott Performance Hall at 7 p.m.
