At the Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, they're still finalizing plans for their fourth center-wide intercultural festival. Highlighting and celebrating the mix of cultures on display at the center, this year's showcase will include performances by members, volunteers and guest presenters. On tap: a Balinese dance demonstration, expo-style information tables and a panel discussion on cultural traditions. Attendance is free, although visitors must register as members (that's free and open to New York City residents) to participate.
