This Friday from 4 6 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. 11 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 11 p.m., head to the Fair Expo Center for the Colombian Independence Day Festival, where more than a dozen Latin music artists will keep you from standing still.

Of course, there will be Colombian food and arts and crafts for sale.
