Organizers say it was a great way for people from all walks of life to have an opportunity to be exposed to the diverse Hispanic culture while enjoying live music and food.

“It is the very first time we are holding a Latino Hispanic event in the south side of Harrisburg which is mostly Latino, and it was like this community needs something to bring back culture and pride and we don’t want our children to forget their culture,” Jennie Jenkins-Dallas said.

Jenkins-Dallas says some of the corporate sponsors provided healthcare information for seniors that attended the South Side Fiesta.
