Plenty of traditional ethnic food and entertainment are on tap before the curtain comes down on the 55th annual International Village on Thursday.

The lineup on the main stage at Stephen Barry Field in Renziehausen Park in McKeesport features Harry Babinger (Germany), Ibeji African Drum Ensemble, Lajkoniki Polish Dancers, FAAP Dancers (Philippines), The Folk Factory (Southern European Balkan) and PAS Slovak Folk Ensemble.

The finale will include bagpipers and honor guard, singer Tammy Petty and fireworks. A Polka Party is planned under the Jakomas Blue Top Pavilion with Karl Lukitsch Autobahn. Entertainment on both stages is from 6-10 p.m.

McKeesport firefighters will collect for the Muscular Dystrophy Association at each of the gates during the final night of the festival. There is a $2 admission fee.
