On Saturday, Coppell will host its annual Kaleidoscope event from 5-9 p.m. at Andrew Brown Park East. 

The event will commence for its third year to display Coppell’s diverse community through various performances, music and food. Admission is free. 

There will be various performances by groups such as Tejas Dance DFW, Inishfree Irish School of Dance Dallas, Jiu Long Lion Dance Troupe, Bandan Koro African, Drum and Dance Ensemble and Grupo Pakal​. 

Attendees looking for a bite can also head over to various food trucks, such as Cajun on the Go, Eggstand and Fruit Bowl to experience the taste of other cultures. 

As parking is limited at Andrew Brown Park East, it is suggested attendees park either on Moore Road or at Andrew Brown Park West. 

This year, the event will also feature a community mural which attendees can color on to display Coppell’s immense diversity. 

“It’s a mural to highlight different cultures, diversity and everything,” Coppell marketing director Lilia Gans said. “We just want everybody to color a little piece of a section, and then we’re gonna try to figure out a cool way to display for it everybody to enjoy it when it’s done.
