Visitors to the Port Washington Library enjoyed themselves on Saturday, April 28, eating delicious Latin American food samples and international desserts. Children and their parents flocked around the Guatemalan exhibit to learn how to make intricate yarn bracelets. Other exhibits highlighted the crafts and showed photos of Mexico, Colombia, El Salvador, Ecuador and other Latin American countries.

Other choices were a computer program demonstration on improving English at noon, a library tour in Spanish and English at 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., a strolling guitarist, Moises Obando at 1 p.m., Latin dance lessons with Naomi Penner at 1:30 p.m, Jose Obando and his five-piece ensemble presented "Dancing: Intrinsic Elements of Salsa," followed by dancing for all at 4 p.m. The Latino Festival is generously funded by the Friends of the Library with special recognition of support from Joyce and Robert Fieldsteel.
