7th Annual Festival Colombiano is the Sexiest Event in L.A. with Regional Food, Music, and Colombian Beauties

I'm still feeling the South American rhythms of Colombia, smell the familiar scents of Colombian street foods, and see the confidence and energy of the the beautiful paisas, caleñas, and costeñas: the women of Colombia.

The Festival Colombiano is still unknown to non-Latinos--I'd say the crowd was mostly Colombian, Mexican, and other Latino groups--I maybe saw 10 non-Latinos the entire time I was there. You can read about the rare regional Colombian food I enjoyed in Los Angeles Magazine's Digest.    

I'm sad that I wasn't able to attend the last 3 years--I always had a conflict--but this happens every July around Colombian Independence Day; it's always at the Pico Rivera Sports Arena, and I can't wait to go next summer. It's bacanisimo!!!!
