Fiesta Latina to bring culture, food, music to downtown Columbus

You have a chance Friday evening in downtown Columbus to learn more about Latino culture, to try some new foods and to experience some authentic music.

Local groups including Su Casa and the Latino Education group are organizing Fiesta Latina.  Luz Elena Michel, with the Community Education Coalition, explains.

Michel said the goal is to educate the community about Latino culture and traditions. You don’t have to possess any knowledge of Latin American countries or speak Spanish to enjoy the event.

Michel said that this year’s event will highlight the cultures of Mexico and Venezuela.

Fiesta Latina will be from 5 to 10 p.m. Friday on Fourth Street. The event is free and you are invited.

You can learn more about Fiesta Latina on Facebook.
