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.
