Last year I attended the Cinco de Mayo festival in downtown Portland. This four-day festival featured amusement park rides, food booths, art and crafts, basketball tournament, and musical entertainment. This annual event has been organized for 24 years by the Portland-Guadalajara Sister City Association. I was impressed by the variety of cultural offerings that incorporated educational and political components. For example, during oen of the days they held a Naturalization Ceremony in the main stage which featured new U.S. citizensh proudly displaying their naturalization certificates (I wonder how many had dual citizenship). The group provides student scholarships under the Somos Orgullosos Latinos Scholarship Program and Cesar Chavez Leadership Scholarships. I encourage everyone to attend to see for themselves.
