Join AARP as we participate in fun filled, family friendly events during the third annual Nuestra Feria (“Our Fair”), hosted by the Hampton Roads Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (HRHCC). The feria will be on June 30, 2013 from 12-6pm at Red Wind Park, 899 Ruffian Road, Virginia Beach VA, 23454. The event will feature a parade, soccer clinic for the kids, traditional Hispanic dances and music, a Zumba Dance Along, local Latino owned restaurants, and much more.

“The success of Nuestra Feria will enable the Hampton Roads Hispanic Chamber to strengthen the bridge between the Hispanic community and other patrons of the community including businesses, individuals, and others seeking to exchange experiences. Looking forward to the future, I believe we all have much to benefit from the introduction and consistent presence of diversity in our communities,” said Jaime Baron, Vice President of the Hampton Roads Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
