ORONO - UMaine held its annual Culturefest on Saturday, giving students and community members the opportunity to learn about different countries.
Students at UMaine say the event is a way for the community to better understand other cultures.
"The concept is just to represent a different part of the world, and it's a cultural exchange and it's a wonderful way how people communicate from different cultures, it's something unique and special," says Eliesa Stoyneva, an international student.
International students say the best part is seeing others learn about their culture.
