The Ethnic Expo is this weekend in Columbus.
Mayor Kristen Brown says this is the 29th edition of this event, which draws approximately 30,000 people downtown over the course of the two-day celebration.
One of the big draws every year is the parade. Brown says this year's parade kicks off Saturday at 11 a.m. and will take the same route it did last year. It will run south on Washington Street before turning west on Third Street.
As for the expo itself, Brown says it remains a free event due to the generosity of sponsors. This year's lead sponsor is First Financial Bank. Brown went on to say that there will be 29 international food booths and 11 bazaars selling merchandise.
