Cincy-Cinco celebrates culture, honors mothers at region's largest Latino fest


If you’re in the mood for salsa dancing, live music and authentic Latino cuisine, mark your calendars for May 7-8, when the 13th annual Cincy-Cinco highlights Latino traditions, values and culture on Fountain Square.
 
“We want people of all ages and backgrounds to have the opportunity to enjoy and learn about the rich heritage of Latino music, dance, and food,” Cincy-Cinco Chair Alfonso Cornejo says. “And this year we are celebrating Mother’s Day all weekend long.”
 
Children will be sure to have a good time with piñatas and a Conga parade. There will also be opportunities to paint flowerpots as tokens of appreciation for mom.
 
Cincy-Cinco is the largest Latino celebration in the region, with all proceeds benefiting local nonprofits that serve and support the Latino community.
 
“We are so happy and proud that this event is becoming a great tradition in this city to add to the many other wonderful events and traditions,” Cornejo says.
 
Cincy-Cinco takes place 12-11 p.m. Saturday and 12-6 p.m. Sunday.
