The first-ever Hood River Latino Festival takes place on Sunday, May 14 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Hood River County Fairgrounds, and is free and open to all. (The headline in Wednesday’s Hood River News gave the wrong day of the week.)
Organizers of the event, the newly established Hood River Latino Network, hope that the entire community comes out to enjoy the free entertainment and information booths.
“We want to unify the communities more than anything,” said President Martha Verduzco last week.
Sponsors for the event include Pepe’s Tacos, La Michoacana, Jim’s Market, Tropicali Fruit, Angel’s Nieve, Hood River Taqueria, Rivera’s Jumpers, Lake Taco, Cascade Acupuncture, Maria’s Taxes, El Monte Taqueria, Morris, Starns, & Sullivan, PC, Apple City, Mayra’s Fashion/Ortigoza’s Auto Repair, Monica Romero Insurance Agency, Hood River Taqueria, Metro PCS/Marco Sports, El Mirador, Taqueria Mi Pueblito, Los Temerosos, Beso Design & Print, and Farmers Insurance-Debbie Klaviter.
