This festival is always eclectic with music from throughout the Diaspora, lots of things to buy and good food.  Looking forward to seeing the soccer tournament, a new addition this year.  But I'm especially looking forward to the El-Salvadorian swimwear fashion show and Chicago Samba, the Brazilian dance troupe.  Should be fun.
