Several hundred people mingled on the Fine Arts Center (FAC) of Kershaw County grounds for the ALPHA Center’s annual Hispanic festival Saturday. Using the theme “Un día de campo entre amigos” -- literally translated as “A field day with friends” and touted as a picnic -- the festival celebrated Hispanic art, music, culture and sponsors who support the Hispanic community. ALPHA Center Hispanic Services Coordinator Carlos Harris said this is the third year he has overseen the effort for the festival.
