9th Annual Athens LatinX Festival
The entire Athens community is invited to the 9th annual Latinx Festival this Sunday. Audey Lee is volunteer development specialist with the festival.
“It’s really important to recognize all the thriving dimensions of the Latin community, that a lot of people don’t think of or don’t see.” Lee said.
Beto Mendoza is director of the event. He says one of the big draws, as always, is the food.
“To discover the soul food, or the traditional food of the South, and bring the taste of the South American food and bring them together and kind of rediscover our cultures from a different perspective. “
The free festival is Saturday noon to 8 pm, on Washington street between Hull and Pulaski.
