Lakeridge Elementary’s first world cultures night on Wednesday, May 15, featured booths of various nations and a performance by the Comerford School of Irish Dance.

The dancers' costumes are embroidered with traditional Celtic symbols, some from illuminated manuscripts of early Ireland.

Below, Addie Bader, a seventh-grader, performs with other Comerford Irish dancers during the fair.
