Here's some of what's happening at the food festival.\rFriday, August 18\rKick off a tasty weekend with the Latin Supperclub and segue your way through a six-course tasting featuring food inspiration from around South America. The Summer Carnival adds Latin music and dance to the night's festivity, with samba, tapas, and cocktails. \rSaturday, August 19\rThe festival is in full swing on Saturday. The Gran Tasting pulls together Latin-inspired food and beverages from the Old Country (Spain & Portugal) and the Americas (Central & South America, plus the Caribbean and Mexico).
