At MSU, the 37th-annual International Festival was being held on Sunday.
Highlights this year included more international food and cultural vendors than ever before.
MSU spokespeople say the event helps to unite many different people.
"And we really do it to really showcase the international students that we have here at MSU," said Kyle Goodfellow of MSU.
The event was expected to draw an estimated 4,000 people to Minnesota State.
