WORTHINGTON — Representatives of many nations will converge in downtown Worthington for this year’s International Festival.

WORTHINGTON — Borjan Jaksic of Boki Gelato is returning to the International Festival for a third year, bringing his homemade sweet-and-icy treats for Worthington area residents to enjoy. “We’re based out of Sioux Falls, and I started our gelato place a little more than three years ago. We make everything from scratch — for example, we’ll be bringing six pounds of fresh strawberries along — and it tastes really, really good,” Jaksic enthused.
