The Latino Enhancement Cooperative at Indiana University is hosting Festival Latino on Saturday Oct. 5.
This event is part of the National Hispanic Heritage Month and it celebrates the Latino culture.
“Their goal is to bring together people on and off campus to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage month,” Lillian Casillas, Director of IU’s La Casa, says, “It also provides an opportunity for the other Latino student organizations to show what they have to offer.”
Casillas says the event gives those in the Bloomington community a chance to learn more about the Latino culture and to gain more information about how to take part in the services that are provided by Latino groups on campus.
There will also be activities that people can take part in at the festival. Casillas says that there will be food and a live DJ at the event.
Festival Latino takes place on Saturday Oct. 5 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. in Dunn Meadow
