Albany-  A festival to showcase Hispanic culture in Albany is growing.

The second annual Hispanic Festival will be held this weekend in downtown Albany. Event coordinators moved the event this year to the parking lot on the corner of North Jackson and Broad Avenue and promise music, dancing, activities for the kids and crafts.

"We are a growing population, a population that is bringing growth to the area, hard workers and we just want to celebrate with everyone, and make sure the community knows we are here to help and make it grow," said Ana Diaz-Torres, Hispanic Festival Coordinator.

The event will run Saturday September 15th from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
