Central Astoria LDC invited locals to the RIOULT Dance Center on Steinway Street in Astoria for a multicultural celebration on Feb. 16.

The free event — supported, in part, by public funds from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs and Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer — celebrated the cultures of Italy, Russia, Peru, Bangladesh, Mexico, Ireland and the countries of the Caribbean with traditional music and dance.
