Latin American Culture, Diversity Celebrated at Hispanic Heritage Festival | Services


As performers danced and played music from many Latin American cultures at a Hispanic heritage festival on Saturday, many people were drawn to tables under a large tent. There, while escaping the rain, they found Damaris Ponciano-Jackson and his students helping people make piñatas, pinwheels, and flashlights.

Ponciano-Jackson is the director of the Éxito STEAM summer program at Centro Hispano in Frederick, which hosted Saturday’s festival. The Éxito program includes courses in STEM, arts, English and Spanish, and general life skills.
