FERNDALE – One of the most popular local events of spring is taking place at Boogie Fever in downtown Ferndale. “Salsa” is in its fourth year and celebrates Mexican culture with food, music, and dancing all while supporting La Comunidad, the Latino-focused community organization that conducts health and cultural programs in southeast Michigan.
This year’s event features free dance lessons from 6-7 p.m. and dance performances and Latin dance competition from 7-11 p.m. with a $500 prize for the best couple.
Three area Mexican restaurants will provide free food sampling. Everyone attending gets to take home a bag of chips and a pint of world famous salsa from Garden Fresh Salsa, an award winning Ferndale-based company.
Staff members and volunteers of La Comunidad and Midwest AIDS Prevention Project, the organization that sponsors La Comunidad, will give a multitude of door prizes and raffle prizes away.
“Ferndale is very proud to be the site of this annual event celebrating Latin culture in southeast Michigan which brings color, flavor, and style to our diverse city,” said Ferndale Mayor Robert Porter.
