Second multicultural festival held in Lebanon, Pennsylvania

By the Q Hubo News team

On Saturday, October 2, the second multicultural festival of Lebanon, Pennsylvania was celebrated. This event was located at 8th and Cumberland streets in the city of Lebanon. The event started at 12pm and ended at 7pm. Although the event was designated as multicultural it was evident that the main culture that was celebrated during this event was the Latino culture. According to the information obtained by the census of Lebanon, Pennsylvania, this city has 44% of its population that is Latino.

This event was planned barely 3 months before according to local sources. The event was carried out by Juntos de Lebanon and promoted by the digital radio station Camara 809. Some local organizations were not informed until a short time of the celebration of this event, according to information obtained by Q Hubo News. Despite the said short time according to local sources, the event was able to obtain sponsors and obtain participation from the community.

Camara 809, the digital station, was in charge of producing the entertainment with Latin music, despite the event having been sponsored as a multicultural event. At the beginning of the event there was a prayer for a local pastor and then music and different portable tents set up by organizations that made a donation to “help” with the expenses incurred in the execution of this event. According to one of our informants whose identity is anonymous, the donation for having a table was $ 40 dollars.

During the event, people could stop by the different stores and learn more about the participating organizations in addition to obtaining free products or demonstrations. Some of the participating organizations were:

1-First Family Health

2-Lebanon Family Health Services

3-SARCC

4-Bell & Evans

5-WEPA Empowerment Center

6-Union Community Care
