Celebrating Hispanic Heritage month, the Latino Fiesta & Soccer Challenge will continue with some of the old traditions of the Latino Festival. We will host a larger soccer tournament and have awards for participants.
Saturday, October 8 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. Rock Quarry Park, 701 Stadium Drive The Durham Latino Fiesta & Soccer Challenge originally scheduled for Saturday, September 24 has been rescheduled to the rain date of Saturday, October 8, due to muddy field conditions at Rock Quarry Park. Although it is not supposed to rain on Friday or Saturday, the field does not have enough time to dry out before we start placing heavy equipment on it. We hope to see everyone out at the event on Saturday, October 8!
