MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo. (KSDK) – Sochi wasn't the only place celebrating the world today.

Maryland Heights hosted a parade of nations this afternoon during its annual International Festival. It marked the 13th year for the event, which features music, dance, crafts and an international marketplace.

"There's a lot of different cultures in Maryland Heights," Mike Moeller said. "It brings them all together and gives everybody a chance to see what you don't normally see on an everyday basis as far as their dancing, their costumes, their customs, their language."
