There was a festival in a large city. It was put on by people who wanted to share who they are. These people had their families come from different countries.

This festival was for families. Many families came out to learn about life in the different countries. The countries are located in Central America, a place south of the United States. There were 21 different Latin countries sharing their way of life at the festival.

People who came to the festival could taste foods made like they are in the other countries. They were able to listen to Latin music. There was dancing as well.

The weather was nice which made for a good day to walk around and see it all. Some people were showing things that they made. People could buy these things from them.

This festival has been going on for 10 years. Each year, more people come. They had a very large crowd this year. It was free and many people enjoyed it.
