Hola Festival Knoxville, TN Sat. 9/19/2009

This Saturday, September 19, 2009 is the date for the Hola Festival. Knoxville is known for our wide variety of cultural events. No town does culture better than we do! This festival is another fine example.

The festivities for the Hola Festival go from 11:00 am - 8:00 pm. There is lots to do. Bring your walking shoes and your Salsa moves and prepare to have fun. Activities include a kids area with Dora the Explorer and a day of dancing and music for the entire family.

There will also be a colorful display of the Parade of Nations. It is the goal of the Hola Festival to have every nation represented. Look for vibrant costumes from the Caribbean, Spain and other Latin American Countries.

The Bazar at the Hola Festival is a terrific place to pick up souvenirs and craft items to take home. Christmas is just around the corner. Is there a better place to pick up a unique gift?

If you get hungry while you attend the Hola Festival that's ok. There will be plenty of food vendors who can help you out. Cultural food is available from several vendors on Market Square Mall.

Now do you want the best news? Parking is free and so is admission. This makes attending the Hola Festival not only fun and educational but budget friendly for families. For those who want to donate a bag of rice or can of beans is accepted. These items will benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of Knoxville. Look for the collection bins at the festival entrances.

Use the free parking at the Market Square Garage and walk over.
