International Mother Language Day, sponsored by the Three Rivers Folklife Society, will be celebrated Feb. 23 in the Tri-Cities.
Anyone interested in making a presentation about their native language at the event is encouraged to register by Friday.
For more information, call Sandip Dasverma at 371-1286.
At last year's event, there were 15 languages represented and organizers are hoping to exceed that number this year.
Never miss a local story.
The celebration is set for 2 p.m. in the Battelle Auditorium, on Battelle Boulevard off George Washington Way in Richland.
Each group will have a 10-minute presentation, with four of those minutes in English and six minutes in the native languages.
