Two family-friendly, Latino-oriented neighborhood events are planned for Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday, the Smithsonian Latino Center and Arlington County’s Tell Arlington’s Story initiative are sponsoring a “family afternoon” at the Walter Reed Community Center (2909 16th Street S.).

The afternoon will feature “hands-on activities inspired by Central American ceramis, Mayan dance presentations, live music, storytelling and talks by archeologist Favio Amador about Central America’s indigenous civilization.” The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place between 1:00 and 5:00 p.m.

On Sunday, a Buckingham community street festival will be held from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. on N. Pershing Drive between Glebe Road and Thomas Street.

The festival will feature music, food, games, raffles, kids activities. Scheduled performers include Amla Boliviana and Luz De Luna.

The event is being organized by the community group BU-GATA, along with various county agencies including the Arlington County Police Department.

  • Babslover

    @babs she prolly will not be there. She is a bit of a racist

  • ICE Agent

  • ArlWoman

    This is for the community. Since no county board members or candidates reside in Buckingham, They will show up only to suck up.

    Gee, I’m shocked at all the hateful and stupid, and not very original, comments. Just shocked. Totally unexpected.

  • FedUp

    That’s probably “Alma Boliviana” rather than “Amla”.
