Among this year’s attractions is the new “Think Global, Party Local” on Friday night, which includes wine tasting, international beer and musical performances.

Throughout the rest of the festival, there are three stages of music that feature continuous music and dancing.

The festival kicked off on Thursday night and goes through Sunday at the St. Paul River Centre. Tickets cost $13.50 for adults and $8 for kids.
