I love this city!!!

Originally uploaded by marilora.
I'm riding the bus home from Maverick Station and as we get to the stop for Kelly Square, I notice that there is a stage set up in the middle of the square. So I decide to hop off the bus and see what's going on. It turns out to be Tito Puente Jr. with Edwin Pabon & orchestra and they are playing hot salsa music with a dance floor set up on the street and everything. Apparently this was part of the Parks Department, ParkARTS program. Tito Puente Jr. was so sweet. He let all the little kids salsa dancing on the dance floor, go up and dance on the stage with him as you can kind of see in the crappy picture I've posted. (Tito is the one in the white suit.) Oh yah. I almost forgot. The Mayor was there, too, but he's everywhere.

Here's a camera-phone video of some salsa dancers. Sorry about the crappy sound. Imagine that dancing to really good salsa music.
