(CBS Charlotte) — The World Parade & Festival is coming to Charlotte this Saturday!

On April 20, 2013, thousands of people will flock to Independence Park for the Second Annual Charlotte World Parade & Festival, which will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The event highlights the similarities and embraces the differences of 45 countries through a parade, traditional clothing/costumes, prepared food, arts & crafts, and other activities.

The goal of the gathering is to celebrate and unite other cultures — at one event. The event is free to the public.

The Charlotte World Parade & Festival is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the diversity of cultures in the Queen City.
