Dayton Hispanic Festival
« on: September 24, 2007, 08:25:19 PM »

According to the census the latino population in the Dayton region grew by over 40% since 2000.   The Hispanic Festival is getting better attendance too.    This is put on by PACO, the Puerto Rican & Carribean Association, but it is for all of Latin America.   As you can tell by the crowd shots this is a fairly multi-culti event.












The El Meson paella man, again



Bolivian stuff.  Fairly rare

 












Grupo Fuego.  I think they are from Cincinnati?







Jalapeno eating contest.  The guy in the hat is the MC for the stage acts, and he is quite a characterů



And little dancing and music things on the side.

Actually, the majority of the members of "Grupo Fuego" are from Cleveland, Ohio...a few from Detroit, a few from Chicago, and one from Cincy
