One of the amazing things about Los Angeles is its diversity. There are so many different cultures represented in this city, and it's great when local organizations recognize it.
In this case, it's Third Street Elementary School in Hancock Park, which will be celebrating the diversity within its classrooms with International Cultural Day on Saturday, Nov. 6.
The event, which also serves as a fundraiser for the L.A. Unified public school, will offer food from more than 30 countries, including Thailand, Korea, France, Mexico and Switzerland. There will also be live world music and performances from professional artists as well as Third Street students.
A special appearance by Avan Jogia, who plays Beck on Nickelodeon's "Victorious," will also join the party.
It's a great way to see cultural diversity up close and support a local public school in the process.
