During the festival, the US Embassy staffed two booths, providing festival-goers with both in-person information on different programs and a chance to win prizes through demonstrating their knowledge of the United States.  Participants got also a chance to speak directly to the Embassy’s Education USA Advisor, who answered questions about study in the United States. The event was a success bringing over 30, 000 participants throughout the 3 days.
