First Hispanic Festival of Clarksville this Saturday
"Saturday will be a celebration of Latino music, food and dance during the first Hispanic Festival of Clarksville."
"The event, at the Havana Cafe on Fort Campbell Boulevard, invites all people who enjoy cultures from Spanish-speaking countries. It also is designed as a forum for education and meeting new friends."
"The U.S. Census Bureau reports that Montgomery County has a population of 141,064 residents, with close to 8,000 residents of Hispanic or Latino origin."
"'I think it's much higher, more like 12,000,' said [Austin Peay State University Spanish professor Ramon] Magrans, who takes into account the many migrant Hispanic workers who come to Tennessee and Kentucky for service, construction and agricultural jobs."
"The Hispanic Festival will be from noon to 9 p.m., Saturday, at the Havana Cafe, 2463 Fort Campbell Blvd. (near Gate 1)"
"For information, call Angel Natal at 980-4391."
