A Design SPLASH and Latino Fest in the Square

Now that summer's over, most of us will be spending more time indoors. Which means it might just be the right time to start thinking about a few home makeover projects. Well, there's no better source of inspiration to be found around town than in Market Square Today, Wednesday October 3, from 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. That's when Design Squared returns to the Square with a new lineup of top-shelf kitchen and bath products, design advice and classes from local and national experts, some great giveaways and the opportunity to enjoy a taste of the Square.

Hosted by the kitchen, bath and lighting pros from SPLASH, which just happens to be located on the corner of Fifth and Market, Design Squared showcases luxury items from Axor, Hillmon and Vangura in an outdoor setting open to the public. Along with the latest trends, Design Squared features a live cooking demonstration and certified courses for local designers looking to enhance their credentials. After the public portion of the event, attendees can stroll to the SPLASH showroom for a champagne reception, more classes and dinner.

Speaking of style, the city celebrates Hispanic Heritage month with a hot, hot, hot party in the Square on Friday from noon-8 p.m. Sponsored by the mayor's office and city councilman Daniel Lavelle, who represents Downtown's residents and businesses. The Fair in Market Square celebrates Latino culture, music and cuisine with performance by local musicians and artists, amazing food from area Hispanic restaurants and goods from the city's growing number of Hispanic merchants. Among the performers are Jorge Delgado and Melissa Alliston, Aqui Tango, the Guaracha Latin Dance Band and Machete Kisumontao. Authentic Mexican cuisine will be served by Silvi's of the South Side, and the Ujamaa Collective, Latino Family Center and Rite Aid will be on hand to provide health-related advice. Free and open to the public, the Fair in Market Square is part of the city's week-long schedule of activities honoring our Hispanic neighbors and their contributions to the region.
