In festivals

¡Vamos a la fiesta! One of the top festivals in North Carolina, La Fiesta del Pueblo, begins next weekend in Chapel Hill. The fest, a 2-day celebration of Latin culture, will feature four stages of music and dance, including musical acts West End Mambo, Trio Benavides, Carnavalito, and a folkloric dance group from Mexico. There will also be a health fair featuring 40 health organizations that are trying to reach the Latino community; a housing fair presented by Wachovia focusing on predatory lending practices, homeowner rights, and landlord/tenant issues; a soccer tournament in which some of the state's best players vie for the Fiesta Soccer Cup; and of course, great Latin American cuisine. The festival runs Saturday, Sept. 8, from 12 to 8 p.m., and Sunday, Sept. 9, from 12 to 6 p.m. Call 835-1525 for details.
