A variety of cultures were on display Saturday during Stevenson High School's World's Fair event.

Students at the Lincolnshire school have a variety of heritages and traditions, and the event gives them the opportunity to show off their culture and cuisines.

The fair is hosted by the school's Diversity Council, a student club with a goal to increase understanding and appreciation of cultures from around the world.

Student exhibits included art, artifacts, multimedia presentations, clothes and food. Each day closes with music, dance and performing arts presentations in the Performing Arts Center.

The fair continues Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the school, 1 Stevenson Drive, Lincolnshire.
