Elysha Ludwig, the chief organizer of the event was happy over the turnout.

Saddam Hussen, an international student was a volunteer representing Scottsdale Community College.

“This is my first time volunteering in an event like that and I had so much fun,” Hussen said.

Indonesian student, Reni Boediarti also from Scottsdale Community College tried her hand at her college major…marketing. She was one of the event organizers for social media promotion.

“The event was for family, for young people and for kids. We are really happy to have them today. We have everyone around here and we have so many activities going on,” Boediarti said.

“We have local brand vendors and we are happy to have them because they have a very interesting and lovely small business at Scottsdale. We are going to have this typical event very soon.”
