A large variety of multi-cultural entertainment will be offered on an outdoor stage, dozens of local vendors and exhibitors will line the streets, and activities for all age groups will take place throughout the day, attracting thousands of New Yorkers.
Bite into a crunchy bacalaito washed down with Colombian coffee sweetened with French pastries as the kids go rock-climbing, meet the animals at the petting zoo, or ride a real pony. And then there’s the music.
A marching band booms, the Multicultural Kids Band takes the big stage followed by Zumba, Afro-Latin hip hop, Latin jazz w/ Afro-Lateens, poetry, and rap while Emily Surtrees’ classic R&B soul rocks the block before the big finale with Zon del Barrio featuring special guests: Fania All-Star, Nicky Marrero and La Yoli, singing the songs of her mother, La Lupe.
