Gotta dance: It's Latino Heirtage Day!

Gotta dance: It's Latino Heritage Day! Don't expect to sit still for long at today's Latino Heritage Day celebration at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The raucous rhythms and sizzling salsa are sure to have you on your feet and moving in no time.

At the center of the fiesta is a dance contest overseen by Gilbert Pena, head of the local salsa troupe Ritmo y Raza. Regional bands provide the tunes. "We try to get as much of the Latino community involved as we can," says Rock Hall spokeswoman Ruthie Brown. "Expect lots of people from the community onstage."

Educational booths set up throughout the Rock Hall will fill folks in on Cleveland's Latino population. "The community is growing by leaps and bounds," says Brown, adding, "People are always very happy when you celebrate their culture."
Sun., Aug. 13, 10 a.m.-9 p.m.
