Prince George's County Police Department Enjoys Hosting Annual Hispanic Festival

This story comes to us from the Prince George's County Police Department:

This past Sunday, September 19th, The Prince George’s County Police Department partnered with the Maryland Park and Planning Commission hosted the 29th Annual Hispanic Festival.

Community Oriented Policing officers set up several booths during the festivities and were on hand to share informative pamphlets, discuss crime prevention solutions and highlight the on-going collaboration between Prince George’s County Police Department and the Hispanic community. The Hispanic Festival offered a wide variety of activities, entertainment and cultural experiences for all ages.  Activities included a main stage with live entertainment, dance performers, ethnic foods, interactive children’s area, carnival rides and games, craft booths, a teen area, exhibitors/displays, face painting, music, and more.

“We look forward to this event every year,” stated Major Robert Liberati, District I Commander, whose officers provided security and traffic direction while mingling with attendees.  “It’s a great way for our officers to interact with members of the Langley Park community in a relaxed setting.  It also gives us a chance to sample the delicious cuisines of Central America.”

Each year The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission’s Department of Parks and Recreation in Prince George’s County holds the Hispanic Festival on over 40 acres of beautiful park land at Lane Manor Park in Hyattsville, MD. The festival was founded in 1980 and continues to grow each year. The Hispanic Festival draws crowds of 10,000 to 15,000 people each year.  The festival celebrates the culture and heritage of Hispanics in Prince George’s County and the DC/Maryland/Virginia metropolitan area and promotes cultural harmony.
