Update: The Post and Courier was at the festival and has a short report from the festival along with a quick video.

In a sentence, the festival was much what you would expect it to be.

First reporting: North Charleston's Wannamaker County Park is playing host to the 20th Annual Latin American Festival on Sunday, October 2nd, from noon to 6 p.m.

This celebration of Latin American culture, food, dance, children’s activities, and music in a fun, family-oriented environment is an important and exciting cultural experience for the whole family to enjoy.

There will be a classic salsa band as well as dancehall, reggae and cumbia infused music to get your feet moving. There will also be dance demonstrations, cold drinks (both alcoholic and non), authentic cuisine from Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean, a kid's zone and crafts.
