The festival will be alcohol-free and include traditional food, dance, music and artistry. More than 65 vendors will be on-site, and the tunes will range from mariachi to Latin hip-hop, along with their accompanying dances. A marathon of Zumba dancing will kick off the festival on Saturday morning.

The event is free for all ages.
