The annual International Festival drew more than 2,000 members of the Doyle Elementary School family and community members to the campus on May 14.

The annual event celebrates the school's international heritage. With many sons and daughters of University of California students and Golden Triangle/Torrey Pines research facilities, Doyle has one of the most diverse student populations in the San Diego Unified School District.

Students had 18 cultural performances, with 20 heritage booths and more than 40 vendors. Sherri Lightner, San Diego City Council District 1 representative, proclaimed it as Doyle International Festival Day.

Proceeds of the event go to support the school. For more information, contact Principal Kimberly Moore at (858) 455-6230, or the school's website at
