Festival celebrates Latino culture

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Food, music and games all with a Latino twist. This weekend was the 17th Annual Festival Latino at Ogden Park.

The multi-cultural celebration is a big event for Amigos International. Amigos International is a non-profit outreach agency for Latinos in the community.

Amigos International Director Lucy Vasquez said it’s important to have events like this to share and support the Latino culture.

“Hey we are a beach town, and if people at the beach don’t realize how important the Latino community is I don’t know who else can. They are our service sector,” said Vasquez.

Vasquez said they are also looking for volunteers at Amigos International.
