COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The region is getting ready for one its biggest cultural events.
The 2nd Annual Tri-City Latino Festival is set for Saturday, Sept. 13. It will be held at the South Commons in Columbus beginning at noon, rain or shine.
Organizers held a news conference Thursday morning to talk about what the community can expect this year.
There will be food, music and entertainment for the entire family. Although this is a Latin festival, organizers say anyone is encouraged to attend.
"We want to invite the public out to come," said festival co-chair Mimi Woodson. "Just because this is a Latin festival doesn't mean it's all Latino's. It is to unite our community and educate our community and our diversity within the community we live in".
Grammy-winning Latin artists will also be performing.
The festival is free of charge. Organizers only ask that you please leave coolers at home and support the vendors.
