The University of Johannesburg’s annual International day festival kicked off at the university’s Doornfontein campus on Wednesday.
The event began with song and dance routines carried out by participants belonging to local cultural groups that varied from Sotho to Zulu.
All the performers at the event danced their way to the stage and were greeted by the lovely host for the day. Each group of performers was given an opportunity to showcase their culture.
Marked by its diversity, the event was one of a kind, including cultural and religious groups from across the world. Hindu Indians and participants representing countries such as Russia were seen at the event.
The major International day event will be held on Friday at UJ’s Auckland Park Kingsway Campus. UJ hosts the event every year in celebration of heritage month.
