Festival Hispano 2004

Since 1995, the all-volunteer-run Hispanic Festival in Georgetown has been held annually in September at St. Michael's Catholic Church. This Festival is attended by a crowd of 4,000 who enjoy instrumental, vocal, and dance performances, an art exhibit, a costume parade, children's activities, and traditional Hispanic foods. This project is documented with seven pages of text and 30 color snapshots from the 1997 - 1999 Festivals.
