Mexico's eight week celebration

Looks like Philadelphia is paying more and more attention to Latino culture...well at least a part of it. De Pueblo a Pueblo (From Town to Town) is an eight-week celebration in Spring 2012 that will honor Philadelphia's local Mexican community by promoting greater understanding of traditional arts, language, and history of our southern neighbors. The citywide festival will connect this growing population and their customs with a broader Philadelphia audience. Most if not all of Philadelphia's Mexican community will take part in the festival including the Mexican Consul of Philadelphia, Mexican Cultural Center, Puentes de Salud, Penn Museum and more. Glad to see Mexican celebrates all year long rather than during September aka Mexico's Independence Festival. However, I can see some people taking this festival the wrong way during 5 de Mayo -_-. Either way...let's celebrate!
