Much more than music: why I love Festival People En EspañolTuesday, September 17, 2013
So, I know a few weeks has passed, but I want to share you why the Festival People En Español is more than just music. What it brings to San Antonio is magical, and I can only hope that the event has many more years here. What the Festival has done for me, is more than what I could have imagined. It has fulfilled dreams that I have about being a part of my Hispanic community and it has brought me memories that I hope to remember and will continue to talk about my entire life.
It also brought Hispanicize to San Antonio! Our friends at Hispanicize almost didn't make it to our city, but with the festival in town, I don't think founders, Manny Ruiz could resist! San Antonio kicked off their Hispanicize HX tour, and I got to mingle and meet with social media and marketing friends, old and new!
So as Saturday came, our plan was to explore the daytime events as a family. It gave us some fun time together as we walked through town, and took in some daytime activities. It helped teach my children (and us parents) some patience as we waited in line for the Doc mobile. It was such a highlight for my daughter. There were even real doctors who were working with the kids as they gave their stuffed animal a checkup!
The Festival also brought us Nely Galan! I first saw her on HBO's Latino List. She announced that she is bringing her motivational tour, the Adelante Movement to San Antonio. Ladies, this is a free event, with inspirational latinas that you will not want to miss! After she spoke to the crowd on stage, she signed people up to learn more about her movement, took pictures and signed autographs.
