Latinx fest celebrates heritage and community

The Columbia County Sanctuary Movement hosted the 2nd annual Latinx Festival on Saturday, September 17 in Hudson. Organizers say over 1,000 people attended. Events began with a Warren Street parade stepping off from the 7th Street Park and continuing down to the Hudson Riverfront Park. During the parade, flags of many countries were carried by parishioners of Iglesia Evangelica “Amigos” of Kingston (pictured). At the park, there were performers as well as food, craft vendors, children’s activities and community tables. The Latinx Afterparty started at 7 p.m. at the Hudson Brewery across the street from the festival. Hispanic Heritage Month in the United States runs from September 14 through October 15.
