Throughout the year, the Multicultural Association of Pictou County provides cultural presentations to local area schools. Members of the association dress in attire from their individual countries and teach students about a variety of topics including language, culture and food. Students find these presentations both informative and entertaining and often ask many questions to the presenters.
