The 116th Festival Brings Joy to El Barrio

It’s been two years of no dancing and no cheering on the streets of El Barrio. But all the dancing and cheering came back last weekend at the   116th Street Festival.  True the pandemic has played a major role in the joy of the city, especially among the Latin American community.  But the music, food, and dancing brought the crowds back to El Barrio on Saturday, June 11. The festival achieved its goal of bringing everyone together for the day from community residents to artists to business leaders. As this reporter took pictures, you could feel the happiness. Even though the fear of #covid19 still lingers, there was joy in El Barrio.   (photos and text by Ismael Nunez for PRSUN) To view more of Ismael's photos, visit him on Flickr .
