In fiestas

What's the best way to ensure a fantastic weekend? Start partying right after work on Friday night. Get loose with some Hispanic music, food and great company at La Fiesta de Unidad. This unity picnic is a fundraiser for several Hispanic groups in the area that are organizing the Hispano-Latina Political Summit--a summit conducted for and by the mushrooming Latino community so they may coordinate a political agenda in our state and throughout the South. While Anglo- and African-American participation in the summit will be limited to those providing resources and education, the fiesta is an excellent time for everyone to celebrate and show support for such a vital and effervescent part of our local culture. The fiesta begins at 6 p.m. on Friday, July 14, at North East Central Durham Community Center, 1107 Holloway St. There's a suggested donation of $5 per plate for adults, and $2.50 for kids--a perfectly affordable and delicious way to get it in gear for a fun-filled weekend. Call 560-2120 for directions. --Laura Hatmaker
