Latin party

Savor some Latin flavor at the Mi Alma Latina (My Latin Soul) event in the courtyard on South Broadway Saturday. A party with free food, dancing, pinatas, Latin DJ Pedro Guilarte, face-painting and fun for all kicks off after a ribbon-cutting celebrating the completion of a clay tile project that brought together artist Angelica Pozo and Baltimore's Latino community, mostly children. Together, the group created colorful tree surrounds -- pavers reflective of Hispanic life and community -- which have been placed around four trees on the 200 block of S. Broadway. Baltimore Clayworks in partnership with Education Based Latino Outreach, Southeast Development Inc./Broadway Corridor Project and the Parks and People Foundation present the event.

Ribbon-cutting ceremony of Mi Alma Latina begins at noon Saturday in the courtyard at 225 S. Broadway. Free. Call 410-578-1919.
