PHOTOS: Festival CentroAmericano returns to West Seattle

(WSB photos)

After moving to South Park last year, Festival CentroAmericano is back in West Seattle, and the celebration’s happening at Westcrest Park until 7 pm.

You can enjoy treats …

… vendors …

… and entertainment:

The Coffee Band – a group with Honduras roots – was onstage while we were there. Other music and dance groups are scheduled to perform all afternoon. The festival’s free – lots of room to roam on the sprawling green at Westcrest!

    Thank you West Seattle Blog for posting this! If I hadn’t checked the WS Blog this morning, I would’ve missed what turned out to be such a gratifying and affirming event. I’m first-generation Guatemalan American and was so proud to share my cultural heritage with my partner and daughter at today’s festival.

      So glad to hear that! Sorry we didn’t have a preview earlier in the week – we had this in our event calendar after seeing a brief mention on a Seattle Parks list a few months ago; never did hear directly from the organizers so we didn’t have much advance info, but going over to check it out for a “happening now” was a don’t-miss in our plan for today – TR

    Thanks WSB for posting this event.  We walked over there to check it out.  This kind of fun event is a great use for that space on top of the reservoir.

Sorry, comment time is over.
