La Bendición partners with community organizations for 2012 Hispanic Heritage Festival

HispanicHeritage2012This year’s Hispanic Heritage Festival, created and hosted by La Bendición Covenant Church, will feature participation and sponsorship by various Brooklyn Park organizations, including the Mayor’s office, police department, fire department and local public schools. The annual celebration will take place on Saturday, Aug. 25, from 3-6 p.m. in the Redeemer Covenant Church parking lot.

The free event will feature a parade, food, live music, games, exhibits from a variety of Latin American cultures, and a new “Folklore Dance Contest.”

La Bendición has extended an invitation to NWC churches to “participate, promote, pray and economically support the Hispanic Heritage Festival,” according to Pastor Juan Lopez. “I await with excitement to hear from you soon and to count with your participation, but most importantly, that your congregation will take this initiative as a great opportunity to share our Hispanic heritage, show our unity and exalt our God through this event.”
