EAST STROUDSBURG, MONROE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — A celebration of culture got grooving Sunday in Monroe County.

Rides and musical performances were ongoing throughout the day for people to enjoy. People were excited to share and express themselves through their culture.
“So basically when you are a Latin person, you love to express your culture and experience all your people out here. That we come in all colors and you get to hear your great music and just move to the rhythm,” Lynnda Tirado said.
