Celebrating the Hispanic Fiesta @ Penn's Landing

Is it me or do Latinos love free things? I know I've written about this topic before but I must say it never fails to amaze me. Whether in a torrential downpour or 100+ humidity weather, we will stand in line for our chance to win a t-shirt or other prize. This past weekend I worked the Telemundo Philadelphia booth at Concilio's 31st Annual Hispanic Fiesta and wow is all I have to say. Unfortunately I was unable to sit down and enjoy most of the performances, but it was great seeing all the people come to our booth and win prizes. The best is seeing children try their hardest and wearing our Olympic medals.

To win the medals attendees had to either play the bean bag toss, toss across or the kick and score. People had more fun with the bean bag toss for some reason. Either way, it was great seeing the reaction of everyone's face. And not to brag but honestly, our line had to be the longest from any booth. Was it the location? Brand? Prizes? The line did not stop from 2 p.m. until we closed. Unfortunately we had to close early because our prizes were all gone.

Nos vemos at the next festival!
