FRANKSTON’S Ventana Fiesta will return this year.

From 9 February to 24 March, a packed calendar of events will take place to celebrate Latin-American, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish cultures.

High-flyers will take to the sky in a showcase of Lucha libre professional wrestling. Music, dancing, food, and art will all feature over the course of the event.

Frankston councillor Suzette Tayler said that “Ventana 2021 Reimagined” will be an “amazing celebration with something for the whole family.” 

“There’s so much to do, enjoy and explore – from the online drinks activity where participants can learn to make margarita with Mexican-style icy poles, sangria and mojitos, as well as cooking where you can learn to make delicious Spanish paella and mouth-watering tacos,” Cr Tayler said.

“There’s great activities for the kids including craft where the younger members of our community can make face and head art and design their own fantasy mascot. You can also learn how to wear a contemporary poncho and watch Guatemalan weavers at work.

“In addition to our usual amazing program, this year’s Fiesta is also heading online for the first time bringing the best of Latin into your living room. Enjoy a taste of the Ventana program from the comfort of your home with an array of tempting free online activities and workshops available.”
