A chess challenge will also be set up Saturday. Members of the Rochester Chess Club will take on all challengers.
“Chess is a world game. It’s an international game,” said John Berquist, coordinator of this year’s world festival, in explaining the game’s introduction to the festival.
Another family-friendly draw will be hands-on children’s activities, including calligraphy and crafts.
