For the second time ever, Farragut Primary School celebrated various cultures during its Festival of Nations Thursday, April 27, throughout the school. Students, their parents and members of the community came in authentic dress and brought native dishes to share with those attending. Started in 2019, the festival had not been held since due to COVID concerns.
