Every year there's a huge celebration of Latin American Culture on the National Mall.  This Saturday and Sunday it's Fiesta Latina and the focus is on Dominican Republic.  Head down to DC for food, costumes, culture, dancing, a parade, and much more.  Most things are free and you can learn more at this link.








Every year there's a huge Greek Festival in Silver Spring.  Honestly, it's more about the food than anything else.  Greek Fest runs all weekend at the Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church.  Gyros, baklava, lamb, spanokopita -- hungry yet?  Grab all the details you need about filling your tummy at this link.
