Hannaford Hispanic Heritage Celebration lights up Empire State Plaza
Final installment of “Summer at the Plaza” concert series to be held on September 22

ALBANY, NY – The sounds of Latin rhythm and dance will resonate from Empire State Plaza as Capital Region residents honor Hispanic culture and history at the fifth annual Hannaford Hispanic Heritage Celebration on Saturday, September 22 from 3 to 8 p.m.

Presented by the New York State Office of General Services and held during National Hispanic Heritage Month, the celebration will offer an array of Latino food, cultural festivities and dynamic live music at the Plaza. Admission is free.

“I hope everyone will enjoy the annual Hispanic Heritage Celebration, which will include great music, activities and, of course, fabulous food,” said New York State Office of General Services Commissioner RoAnn Destito. “We are very pleased that Hannaford is once again partnering with us to sponsor this exciting free festival featuring merengue and salsa music that will have the whole crowd dancing.”

The day’s live entertainment lineup will include DJ Xtreme accompanied by Latin dancers; Reggaeton from Flow Boyz; a salsa performance from En Clave Dance Studio; merengue band Amarfis y la Banda de Attake; and salsa band La Excelencia.

Traditional Latino food vendors and family-friendly activities will be available throughout the Plaza grounds. Cultural items and merchandise will also be on display for purchase.

The Hannaford Hispanic Heritage Celebration coincides with National Hispanic Heritage Month, which begins on September 15, the anniversary of independence for five Latin American countries – Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua.

“Hannaford is proud to once again partner with the New York State Office of General Services to make possible this tremendous celebration of Latino culture and heritage,” said Hannaford Albany District Manager Mike Merrow. “The Hannaford Hispanic Heritage Celebration allows the Capital Region to honor National Hispanic Heritage Month with an energetic outdoor festival designed to highlight the traditions of the Hispanic community.”

The Hannaford Hispanic Heritage Festival is the final event of the 2012 “Summer at the Plaza” concert series, a summer-long series of concerts, events, and entertainment presented by the New York State Office of General Services.
