JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) -- A night of celebrating diversity took place at the Johnson City elementary school Thursday night. 

Culture night celebrates all of the cultures within our communities.

Families brought in unique dishes, artifacts, and poster boards with information on their culture.

There were also dance routines by Irish, Laotian and salsa dancers. The event is about celebrating differences and similarities within cultures.

Teacher Mary Ellen Gilroy spoke about the event.

"In this world that we live in there is so much strife, and we love to just be able to say you know what? Tonight's the night we celebrate culture. We celebrate our differences and our similarities," said Gilroy.

This was the fifth year of culture night at Johnson City Schools.
