FIESTA Fort Wayne was August 12 at Headwaters Park. Zapari said around 5,000 people attended the one-day festival. There’s hope to make it a multi-day event in the future.

Founded in May 1994, el Mexicano is the region’s largest Spanish Newspaper. Zapari said it’s a good resource for people new to the area to get connected to the community and the resources available.

The free, monthly publication can be found around Fort Wayne at various Hispanic businesses, including George’s International Market on Broadway.
