Salsa Festival Is a Huge Hit

Patch video reporter Ken Guanga takes us up close with the bands, the food, the crowds, the dancing and more.

Crowds from all over the Bay Area - including as far as Oakland - came out for the City of Redwood City's Fourth Annual Salsa Festival on Saturday.

The event featured live salsa bands, booth after booth of artists' wares, appearances by local groups like the Peninsula Roller Girls, and, of course, the salsa! Salsa tastings and competitions took place throughout the day.

Whether you were there or not, take a moment to watch Patch reporter Ken Guanga's video highlights of the event, getting up close and personal with festival-goers, council members and event organizers alike, and featuring footage of some of the amazing bands that performed.

That was a fun event--thanks to all who helped put it on. I liked #11 the best and had #1 second. The other food stands were great (bacon-chorizo-carne asada tacos!!).
