Let's get Multicultural: MTI hosting special festival

Summer festivals are preparing for take-off, but not before everyone gets a chance to celebrate the ever-important Cinco de Mayo!

The annual Multicultural Festival at Manatee Technical Institute is a free event with a packed entertainment line-up.

The upbeat and folkloric Latin festival will feature music, dancing and fresh ethnic cuisine provided by local vendors.

While the event promoting cultural diversity is free to the public, the Farmworker Scholarship Fund will be accepting donations to provide scholarships and school tuition for students.

The night will mark the 48th anniversary of the Farmworker Education Program in Manatee County.

Here is the fun line-up for the kick-off of the weekend of Cinco de Mayo:
  • Eco Band
  • El Guantanamero Cuban Music Band
  • Manatee High School Ballroom Club
  • Brazilian Capoeira Dancers
  • Sarasota School of the Arts Dancers
  • Mexican Singers
  • Fashion Show by Purabell House of Fashion
  • Silvia the Zumba Dancer
  • Texcalli Mexican Folkloric Dancers
  • Mango Latin Band
