“Hispanic people are very friendly and our hearts are always open to share our lives with other people and we are very passionate about everything in life,” Rivera-Oquendo said.

Some of that passion reflected in the diversity of dishes on a long buffet table, representing multiple Latin American cultures. Like many of the nearly 150 attendees, Crestview senior Darius Perry and junior Dylan Stephany dug into foods ranging from beans and rice to crisp quesadillas and several salsa types.

“This is good stuff,” Dylan said.

“The taco dip was the best,” said Phillip Adams, an eighth grader at Davidson Middle School who attended with his mom, Crestview High guidance counselor Michelle Adams.
