The 5th annual Hispanic Heritage Festival was held on Sunday, September 18 featuring local entertainers, crafters and a plethora of cultural food selections that drew neighbors and those from out of state.
“It was a great day for all of us to appreciate the diversity of our own Delaware –and surrounding areas– Hispanic community”, says José Somalo, publisher of HOY en Delaware, organizer of the event.
HOY en Delaware began the event six years ago to highlight local talent and expose area residents to Hispanic traditional music, dances and arts.
Politicians and officers like Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester and Attorney General Kathy Jennings and candidates like the candidate for State Treasurer, Greg Coverdale, among others, stopped by the Hispanic Heritage Festival to enjoy food, performances, crafts and also salute vendors and audience.
Hispanic Heritage Festival is one of the activities produced by HOY en Delaware, the largest and longest running Hispanic publication serving Delaware, Eastern Shore Maryland, Kennett Square and surrounding areas since 1996.
