Saturday the Hispanic Women’s Organization of Arkansas will mix food, music and more in a partially-virtual, partially-drive-through "Festival Anual De Mayo."

In the '90s, an industry  boom in Northwest Arkansas drew large numbers of Latinos to the area.  During that time a group of women, mostly Hispanic, joined together to encourage cross-cultural participation. Today, half of the State's Latino population resides in Northwest Arkansas and The Hispanic Women's Organization of Arkansas continues to advocate for community engagement.
