Latin Festival for Fun and Health

By  | 

The Saint Eugene Catholic Chapel was hosting its second annual Latin Festival Saturday.

Organizers say the event should promote fellowship, family and fun, but they also say it's a way to educate many transient Latinos in the area about important available medical resources.

"We also invited the Health Department. FAMU has a little something right there about farms and basically since our population is migrant and labor, so we want to get also information about health," said Hellen Llamazares, an organizer of the festival.

The Madison, Jefferson and Leon County Health Departments, along with the American Red Cross, were participating in Saturday's Latin Festival. It continued until 8 p.m. Saturday night.
