Organized by BU-GATA, a local tenants association, the festival features “dance music, folkloric presentations, and delicious food.” It runs from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m.

“The festival highlights the diverse cultures of Central and South America,” organizers said. “There will be lots of activities and games for kids. Scholarships will be awarded to students attending higher education courses.”
