Last Saturday, English in Action hosted their 9th annual “Fiesta de Tamales,” a community wide event that brings together hundreds of people from different backgrounds for an authentic celebration of the diverse cultural traditions that coexist in the Roaring Fork Valley.
All proceeds supported English In Action’s mission to help adults learn English and foster a more cohesive community. Attendees had the opportunity to enjoy a bounce house, prizes, entertainment by the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet Folklórico, and decide who offered the Valley’s best tamale.
English In Action students and tutors prepared tamales from secret family and regional recipes from Mexico and Latin America to share with the valley community. Look out for next year’s 10th annual “Fiesta de Tamales” to support English in Action.
