Corazon Latino festival to be held May 3
ETSU's Language and Culture Resource Center and the Hispanic American Student Community Alliance have organized the fifth annual CorazÃ³n Latino Festival on Saturday, May 3, from noon-10 p.m. along Main Street in Jonesborough.
The free public event will begin with a mock "Running of the Bulls," when roller-skating, horn-wearing Little City Roller Girls armed with foam rubber "hooves" will chase those brave enough to challenge them in a sprint down Main Street.
Other entertainment will include Brazilian Fire Dancers at 1 p.m., Latin jazz at 4 p.m., a Latino Pride Parade at 6 p.m., Latin dancing instruction at 7 p.m., and the Main Latino Pop Band at 8 p.m. Food vendors will sell Hispanic specialty foods throughout the day.
Special activities include the CorazÃ³n Sano workshops in Spanish and English offering blood pressure tests, information on common health difficulties, and demonstrations showing cooking traditional Hispanic foods in healthy ways.
The Arte y Cine area features an art walk, storytelling and a Student Film Showcase.
A ChicoZone will provide face painting, bilingual children's stories, an obstacle course and craft projects.
