Not everyone gets the chance to make and eat pierogies at home. Try some at “Around the World” at Hickory Creek Middle School on March 12.

“Around the World” is an annual event that gives local families the opportunity to highlight and share their ethnic background, while offering students, families and the community a chance to learn about traditions, geography, art, religions and political systems.

The event will be held from 5:30 to 8 p.m. March 12 at Hickory Creek Middle School, at 22150 S. Owens Road in Frankfort

This free, all-ages event will feature more than 25 countries, represented by resident families of Frankfort School District 157C.

Entertainment, history, food, culture and more will be celebrated as attendees travel the globe.

At admission, every student and their family will receive printed passport. Participants spend the evening weaving in and out of different countries, collecting stamps along the way and experiencing interactive activities.

New this year, is a free photo both to commemorate the event.

Be sure to grab a taste of something new or a favorite from years past from local food trucks Mediterranean Express, Gotta B Crepes and Pierogi Squad.
