Someone mentioned to me on the go that two Hispanic/Latino Festivals will take place in Charleston this coming Saturday/Sunday. I googled the keywords above and could not come up with any details.

Does someone here have any information? "When" and "where" and possibly "how much" (entry fee)?

I attended a couple of years ago. It was fun.

Point of order for meu amigos Brasileiros:

It is more properly a Luso-Hispanic Festa (Fiesta), or perhaps even more properly an Afro-Luso Hispanic Festival, since it does mention 'Capoeira' so prominently.

Anyway:

Saludos, Parabens!

The other one is at the Old Jail in downtown Charleston on Magazine street. I went to an art show held there and the building was quite a sight. Winding staircases and cave like rooms. It's rumored to be haunted. The grounds allowed for a party in the middle of the city. Very cool.

It is not only haunted but is considered by paranormal experts to be among the most haunted in the world! We've discussed it before here:

The Old City Jail-among the most haunted places in the world

There is a link within that discussion to the paranormal site that details the ghosts there and types of experiences people have had going through there. It sounds VERY scarey. I hope the festival isn't inside.
