Columbia hosts third annual Cinco de Mayo Street Fest this weekend

The Language Buzz, located at 1921 Henderson Street, will host a Cinco de Mayo Street Festival, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 5th from in celebration of multi-cultural language, culture and learning.

This free admission, family event is open to the public. All proceeds benefit The Language Buzz Foundation, a non-profit organization working to create an opportunity for all children to become multilingual and globally aware regardless of socio-economic standing.

In the spirit of a Mexican street party, families can enjoy Mariachi band music, salsa lessons, authentic Mexican street foods, games that teach Spanish phrases, a Zumba session, face painting, door prizes, and DJ music. Cinco de Mayo celebrations began as a commemoration of the Battle of Puebla but have become a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage.

The Cinco de Mayo Street Fest will take place in the 1900 block of Henderson Street in the Historic Robert Mills District, near Spirit Communications Park.

The Language Buzz Foundation provides scholarship assistance to children in need to subsidize participation in summer camps and foreign language classes at The Language Buzz, which opened in 2011 under the direction of Dr. John and Victoria Dozier. The academy provides immersion language classes in Spanish, French, and Mandarin for children aged 3 and up. The founders created a learning center where social experiences are encouraged, academic skills flourish and cultural diversity is welcome. By providing instruction in a full language immersion environment, children are being equipped cognitively, socially and culturally to set the tone for scholastic and global success.

The Language Buzz is a unique foreign language learning center that promotes the early command of languages through language immersion, contextualized learning, and the learning and acceptance of different cultures. General inquiries can be directed to Victoria Dozier at (803) 252-7002, or Victoria@thelanguagebuzzfoundation.com.
