The world is right here in Massachusetts this summer, as the Massachusetts Office of Travel & Tourism issues the 5th consecutive WorldFest '12,  a selection of ethnic cultural festivals taking place throughout the Commonwealth.

The events - ranging from Irish, Greek and Scandinavian to Chinese, Caribbean and Cape Verdean festivities -  celebrates "the world that exists in our backyard," says Betsy Wall, executive director of MOTT, the state tourism agency that compiled the festivals.

Visitors to MOTT's WorldFest '12 website can search for ethnic festivals by name, date or region, finding dozens of festivities that bring a whole new meaning to Massachusetts as a world destination.
