Hundreds attend Latin Festival
The Latino community showed its numbers at the weekends annual Latin Festival, this year attended by hundreds.
Ariel Manzueta of organisers Ministerio Hermandad estimated there are between 1,000 and 1,500 Spanish speakers on the Island.
He said of the event at Somersfield Academys gymnasium: Its about bringing our community together, and allowing Bermuda to get to know the Latino community.
Ten countries were represented at the celebration of Latin culture, food and dress, also attended by Economy Minister Patrice Minors.
On hand was Patricio Rego, a Mexican woman who has lived in Bermuda for 40 years with Bermudian husband Eldon Rego.
When I first came here there were about two or three of us from Mexico, she recalled. It was years before I knew of anybody more. My heart is divided between Mexico and here.
