LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville welcomed its newest group of American citizens on Friday.

One-hundred-and-ninety-seven people from 48 different countries took the Oath of Allegiance at the Muhammad Ali Center.

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes were on hand for the event.

The ceremony was held as part of this weekend's WorldFest. All of the other WorldFest events scheduled for Friday were canceled because of the weather. All WorldFest events for Saturday, Sunday and Monday are still expected to be held.
