Maplewood's inaugural Hispanic heritage festival features Latin food, vendors, and a slew of cultural entertainment and children’s activities. Kids can get Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, face paintings and decorate Spanish fans. Adults can play dominos and buy cigars. The whole family can enjoy entertainers with performances from across Latin America. Don’t know how to dance salsa? You can learn from dance instructors.
The event is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by Somos SOMA Latinos in conjunction with the Maplewood Office of Cultural Affairs and SOMA Cross Culture Works. Visit their website for more information.
