This month, in an effort to bring even more culture to their little corner of Omaha, the crew behind Benson First Friday will host a "Culture Crawl" that will showcase art from several refugees who have been helped by Lutheran Family Services, which is co-hosting the event.

The organizers say cultures that will be represented include "Myanmar: Burmese, Karen, Kareni, Chin and Kachin; Butanese/Nepali; Somali-Kenyan/East African; South Sudanese - Nuer and Dinka; Iraqi-Kurds (Northern); Afghani; and Nigeria and Togo."

They'll close down 60th Avenue north of Maple Street and party on the pavement from 5-10 p.m. on Friday (August 1st) with music and entertainment from Karen Bamboo Dancers, Omaha Burundian Choir, DeWayne B-Box; Fire Spinners and Omaha Street Percussion. Check out their beats by clicking here.

A Kid Zone, food vendors and a fashion show are also on tap.
