Waltham is a city of immigrants. According to Wikipedia, fully one-quarter of all residents are foreign born. Wikipedia goes on to say:​​​​​​​
Waltham embraces its ethnic diversity in a number of festivals. The annual Latinos en Acción Festival celebrates the many Puerto Rican, Mexican, Peruvian, and Guatemalan residents. It is held by Latinos in Action, a local nonprofit group that helps the Latino population register to vote, understand the laws and find scholarships. The festival includes a parade, music, food, and a beauty pageant.
Following are my photo impressions of the Latino Festival 2018. It was held, as usual, on Waltham Common next to City Hall. The weather was perfect, giving us a cool, pleasant Saturday. It was early evening by the time I arrived and took these photos.​​​​​​​
