Amigos Internacional http://whqr.org en Wilmington's Festival Latino A Growing Force Within its Community http://whqr.org/post/wilmingtons-festival-latino-growing-force-within-its-community <p>This weekend, Ogden Park will become a bastion of music, food and dance celebrating the traditions of Colombia, Brazil, Venezuela and many more Latino countries. Festival Latino has been a November tradition in Wilmington for fifteen years, ever since one day when a few Latino families gathered in the park for a picnic. The event has since evolved into a two-day festival that’s projected to draw 20,000 visitors. This growth parallels the expansion of the organization behind the festival, <a href="http://www.amigosinternacional.org/">Amigos Internacional</a>.</p> Fri, 08 Nov 2013 10:00:00 +0000 Katie O'Reilly 45804 at http://whqr.org Wilmington's Festival Latino A Growing Force Within its Community
