Maravilloso!by Linda Odette
Lots of learning, fun and great Latin food filled Ada Vista Elementary at the inaugural Fiesta Latina, organized by the Spanish immersion school's Cultural Arts committee and the Hispanic Center of Western Michigan. Students and their families were given "passports," which were stamped at various booths representing 10 Spanish-speaking countries.
Tamales, enchiladas, cornbread pancakes -- and, of course, green peppers and hot sauce -- were some of the dishes that drew lines. A balladeer, pinatas, an art show and colorful outfits made it a maravilloso evening.
