Festival celebrates Hispanic culture in Maryland

August 12, 2017 by  

The annual Hispanic Festival is taking place on the third Sunday of next month in nearby Adelphi. The event is presented by the Prince George’s County Department of Parks and Recreation.

The festival is set to feature plenty of cultural performances of dance and music. There will also be a wide variety of traditional Hispanic foods available for purchase. There are set to be a number of carnival games for children of all ages and crafts activities.

Vendors will be on hand to sell homemade arts and crafts such as ceramics, jewelry, and clothing, while others will be selling novelties and general merchandise. In addition, a number of local nonprofit and government agencies will be providing information about their programs and services. Many of these vendors will likely hand out freebies to those who stop by their booth.

The city of Laurel is providing transportation for seniors to the festival at a cost of $10 per person; the bus leaves Laurel at 1:00 PM. Flyers will likely be distributed in the city to make sure local seniors know about the trip or they can call 301-776-6168 for more information.

The Hispanic Festival will be held at Lane Manor Park on September 17 from 12:00 to 6:00 pm. Admission is free. To learn more about the festival, visit the Prince George’s County Department of Parks and Recreation website.
