With plans already underway, organizers of the International Festival of Fort Bend (IFFB) recently met at the Sugar Land Branch Library. The annual event is set to take place at the Stafford Centre this fall with the City of Stafford serving as the major co-sponsor. Kick-off plans for the multi-ethnic celebration of cultural diversity in Fort Bend County include a colorful pageantry of events and savory foods representing a sampling of the world.
