Join NYC Parks Arts, Culture & Fun and the Jazz Foundation of America for the 4th Annual Hispanic Heritage Family Day! We will celebrate Hispanic culture and history with Latin dance workshops, arts and crafts, sports, and a Latin Jazz concert with Ray Mantilla.

A professional percussionist for more than 60 years, Ray Mantilla has been the first-call conguero for everyone from Art Blakey and Charles Mingus to Ray Barretto, and Tito Puente. All of his 14 albums as a leader have hit the jazz charts, including his latest, High Voltage.

Bring a blanket, a picnic and enjoy the music!
