The Nashville City Paper reports on the Latin Music Street Fair to be held at Belmont University from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.
"'This is the type of event that unites everyone and isn't only for Hispanics,' [David Herrera, instructor of music business at Belmont,] said. 'It's a very festive gathering, a chance for the community to come out and hear authentic Latin music and get the type of diversified and specially prepared Latin food that you can't get in restaurants.'"
"Some 48 vendors are supplying Columbian, South American, Caribbean and Hispanic food for the event. Other booths will present traditional folkloric dancers, mariachi bands, salsa dance lessons, piñatas and various children's activities like face painting and inflatables. Some particular events include all-day cooking demonstrations with area chefs, and a 'Best Salsa Contest' with finalists from a three-club contest competing for a $500 prize"
