Carnaval del Sol 2012 – A Celebration of Latin American Culture and Food

The fourth annual Carnaval de Sol (Festival of Sun) will take place this Saturday June 30th on Downtown Granville St.

Five lively blocks will be transformed into a Latin fiesta, bringing you the food and culture of countries such as El Salvador, Guatemala, Columbia, Chile, Ecuador, Cuba and many others.

A grand total of 30 Latin American kitchens will be in attendance: Restaurants such as Taste of Jamaica and El Cocal will be there with many great dishes to taste.

And it’s not just the food that will be drawing people in –  with world-class entertainers, family-friendly activities, street dancers and even a soccer tournament, there will be something for everyone.

Last year, over 50,000 people attended the festival.
