BOUNTIFUL, Utah - A festival celebrating the cultures of ten South American countries was held in Bountiful on Saturday.
The 7th annual South American Festival included food, folklore, music, dance and more from places like Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Chile and Venezuela. The festival also featured exhibits selling art, jewelry and clothing.
"We want to say, 'Hi, we are here, we're a part of this community and we want to share the best that we have.' The best that we have is our food, our folklore, our music," said Franceseo Caledron, event director.
The group says it's starting a South American school of music and is planning a holiday toy drive for local kids.
