Celebrate diversity at the Latin Nights Summer Bash
Last year, Chattanooga Latin Nights Summer Bash enjoyed an incredibly successful, incredibly popular inaugural event with more than 300 participants. This year they’re coming back for more, offering Chattanooga a night of Latin music, food, dancing, and fun.
Doors will open this Saturday night at 7 p.m. at The Camp House, with a complimentary salsa lesson from Jesse Ramos from G2G Salsa at 8 p.m.
The night will be alive with varieties of Latin music from Chattanooga’s own salsa band favorite, Carlos Colon & The Tropical Swing. Later into the night DJ Flux 308 will keep participants dancing to the hottest Latin beats.
As well as live music and a night of dancing, local restaurant Ovalle’s will be serving a variety of Latin-infused dishes to hungry participants, while The Camp House will also serve specialty drinks throughout the night.
Xavier O. Cotto explained that, after moving to Chattanooga from Puerto Rico, he wanted to provide Latino-based entertainment and provide a welcome-to-all environment. He was met with overwhelming support from sponsors, vendors, and attendees alike.
“Chattanooga Latin Nights is the beautiful outcome of one person noticing a need for this type of event in town,” Otto says, “and then a whole group of people jumping on board and supporting it in different ways to make it happen.” The night provides an excellent opportunity to celebrate the town’s diversity and culture.
Otto adds, “We’re doing this to advance the Latino arts/music scene in town. We hope new talent emerges.”
