This was my first year selling my art and photography of Puerto Rico at theJuntaHispana festival and what a wonderful day it was!
Art, cultura, food and music from Mexico, South America, Central America, Spain and the Caribbean. As always, I met a number of wonderful, inspiring people, had some great food along with some awesome performances from each country. It only took approximately 20 years of living in Queens to find out about this event! I'll definitely return next year. A special thank you to Gabriela from JuntaHispana.net, a wonderfully warm and poised vendor coordinator, despite the planning chaos!
Temperatures peaked at a hot, hazy and humid 100 degrees (my favorite kind of weather). Families and children frolicked in the sprinklers in front of the infamous Unisphere all afternoon. It was a great day with great energy overall. I'll definitely participate next year!
