Celebrate Your Colombian Independence
It was on July 20, 1810 when Colombia had declared their independence over Spain. 200 years we still celebrate today no matter where we currently residing. Live in the east coast? Then I would suggest heading on over to Flushing Meadows Park in NYC on Saturday, July 18, 2010 - 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.. There'll be music, food, dance, beauty pageant queens, and plenty of yellow, blue, and red Colombian flags, especially at the festival site just south of the Unisphere.
I have only been to the festival in NYC once but it was amazing. Although I don't like crowds, it was good to see a different audience running around NYC celebrating their cultura. Even if you aren't able to make it to Flushing Meadows Park, change your profile picture on Facebook, write a status update or have a party in your house and let the world know we are here. And of course you don't have to be Colombian to celebrate this independence....let's embrace all Latino cultures and everyone else as well.
