Frederick community gathers to celebrate melting pot of Latino culture

September 19, 2022

Men waved their sombreros and women flapped their colorful skirts as they danced “Jarabe Tapatío,” or the Mexican hat dance, Sunday afternoon at the 14th Annual Latino Festival. “Jarabe Tapatío” is the national dance of Mexico, and at Frederick Community College, spectators were clapping, and some were dancing along as they watched the pairs weave through each other. “We would like to have everybody to join with us, not just the Latino community, but we want to invite everybody to be here all together and enjoy all the different things that this melting pot allows us to have,” Ana Maria Pinzon, an organizer, said.
