- Exclusive Special Edition
As most of you may know, this
month is Hispanic Heritage Month. So this past Saturday
I enjoyed the day at South Street Seaport, in lower
Manhattan, for Pathmark's "Celebracion De La Herencia
Hispana." This festive event consisted of a variety
of culturally diverse performances. The celebration
was headlined by recording artist Angel Romero, who's
premiere solo CD is currently climbing up the record
The festival was hosted by actor/comedian Rich Ramirez
and co-host Audrey Puente, weather anchor for "CBS
2 News This Moning." Mexico was represented by
the Mariachi Real de Mexico, along with their folklorico
dance company. Representing Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia,
Chile, and Argenina, the folk band "Tahuantinsuyo"
played their unique sounding instruments, along with
colorful costumed dancers in the tradition of the Incan
This was Pathmark's 4th annual celebration for the diverse
Hispanic cultural goups that live here in New York City.
I felt really honored to be a Latino; a Puerto Rican;
a Boricua. Viva la raza Latina!
