August is here -- the middle of summer, almost -- and LatinoLA is heating up. We're talking about music and movies, art shows and workshops, festival and fiestas ... and the best part is that many of them are for families ...and they're free!
Por ejemplo: Going on their seventh year is Caracol Marketplace, a unique bazaar-market where handmade crafts are sold by their makers. The free event combines music, art, health, wellness and amistad in an outdoor setting close to downtown LatinoLA: Tropico de Nopal Gallery-Art Space.
Come hungry and thirsty and open for new sights and sounds. It's free, but bring your wallet to buy their unique items, many of them home made by local artisans.
Also, thanks to all of you who have been "liking" the work of our fine writers and contributors, sharing them via Facebook, Twitter and more, and leaving your comments. Don't leave LatinoLA without having your voice heard! (scroll down to the end of the article or calendar listing and you'll know what I'm talking about!)
