Day 60 – Festival Calle Orange


Festival Calle Orange shows what one family can do for a community.  For eleven years Rene Plasencia and his family have been organizing, planning and running this enormous celebration of Latin American food, music and culture.  They even store all of the fences that line the streets in their own backyard when they’re not being used!  As we were walking down Orange Ave. through the thousands of people, four stages for live entertainment and countless vendors we couldn’t help but be inspired by how huge this festival was and knowing that it all came from the heart of one family.  One thing is for certain, the Latin American culture is alive, well and celebrated in Orlando!
