Junta Hispana - Flushing Meadow Park!

It's time for the Junta Hispana again! I found out about Junta Hispana last year, through the supermarket C-Town where I shop. The Junta Hispana, an event where 20 Spanish speaking countries get together to celebrate everything about their country. From food, music, to crafts. You will see their traditional dances and clothing. It's an event for the whole family and best of all is free! For the kiddies Nickelodeon’s Dora The Explorer will be there. Make sure to pass by the Bienvenidos/Welcome booth!

It will be held at the Flushing Meadow Park on Sunday August 22 from 11AM-6PM, near the Unisphere. Stages performances start at 12PM. According to their site they will be there rain or shine, good to know ahead of time! Hopefully the weather will cooperate. So start sending evites to your familia/family and friends now. You will get to taste all kinds of traditional food from each country, buy crafts, clothing and enjoy good music. You will also get to try some of the sponsor's product. Goodies, who doesn't like that! 

Take a look at the video below so you can have an idea of what you are going to see there. I didn't go last year, I am going to try to go this year again. This event is not only in New York but also in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles and Miami. I will be posting the dates below.
