Latin American culture, diversity celebrated at Hispanic Heritage Festival

October 3, 2022

As performers danced to and played music from numerous Latin American cultures during a Hispanic Heritage Festival on Saturday, many people were drawn to the tables under a large tent. There, as they escaped the rain, they found Damaris Ponciano-Jackson and her students helping people craft piñatas, pinwheels and flashlights. Ponciano-Jackson is the director of the Éxito STEAM Summer Program at Centro Hispano de Frederick, which hosted Saturday’s festival. The Éxito program includes lessons in STEM, arts, English and Spanish language, and general life skills.
