OREGON CITY - The sixth annual Festival Latino will take place on Saturday, June 7, at Clackamas Community College from noon to 4:30 p.m. The festival brings a variety of community and resources to the Latino community.

The free event includes music, food, health and financial resources, soccer and an introduction to the college through inspirational speakers and tours. Organizer Camilo Sanchez, who teaches CCC's Spanish GED program, said the festival is an opportunity to introduce the Latino community to the college and other important community resources.

"We see more interest in the festival every year. We are committed to continuing to improve this event for the Latino community," Sanchez said.

Entertainment at this year's festival includes the popular Ballet Folklorico, mariachi singer Stephanie Martinez, Azteca dancers, Colombian dance and salsa dancing. This year's annual soccer match will pit the "Anglos vs. Latinos," Sanchez said. Cinco de Mayo restaurant will be on site with traditional Mexican food to purchase.
