The Idaho State University Nepalese Students’ Association will host the fifth annual Nepalese Night at 6 p.m. Feb. 12 in the Pond Student Union Ballroom.
The theme of the celebration is "Naturally Nepal," which matches the theme for the Nepal tourism year 2011.
Nepalese students of ISU join forces once a year to treat ISU and the Pocatello community with authentic food, traditional music, dances and several cultural presentations.
This year the program hopes to offer the audience an insightful look into the natural beauty of Nepal as well as its cultural diversity.
The dinner includes pulao, a dish of white rice with spices; kukhurako masu, a chicken curry; kerauko tarkaari, a pea curry; and Aaloo-teelko achaar, a potato pickled with sesame seeds.
Event performances include traditional lakhey dance, group dances, songs and a fashion show.
"During the two hours of the event, we will take you across the Himalayas, through the hills into the plains," said Prabesh Shrestha, event organizer. "We invite you discover how big and diverse a small country can actually be."
Ticket pricing for the event is $7 for students, $8 for faculty and staffs, and $9 for the public. Tickets are available in the ISU Rendezvous Complex and Pond Student Union weekdays. It is suggested that the audience buy tickets in advance, although they can also purchase tickets for a dollar more at the door.
