Trade Street was transformed into a celebration of cultures from across North America this past weekend, during the second-annual Afro-Latino Festival. Sponsored by the Grown Man Club, the event drew between 400 to 500 people, who turned out to enjoy African and Latino inspired music, dance, food and culture in downtown Tryon Saturday.

Calvin Suber brought his prize-winning 1981 Corvette to display. Suber said he brings his car to show the children and encourage them to go after what they want. “I love telling young children they can have anything they want as long as they work hard,” Suber said.
