Mayor James A. Diossa calls for donations during Salsa Night for relief to both Mexico and Puerto Rico
CENTRAL FALLS, RI – On Friday, September 29th, from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., join Mayor James A. Diossa and the City of Central Falls in the final Salsa Night of the year on Roosevelt Ave Bridge. This event, which promises to be even larger than the last three that averaged over 1,500 people, will also be accepting donations for the disaster reliefs in both Mexico and Puerto Rico.
Salsa Night, which occurs on the last Friday of the month from June to September, provides family friendly fun as everyone dances the night away. The admission is free and no experience is necessary.
“Salsa Nights are one of the most anticipated events of the year, but this final one is the most special,” stated Mayor Diossa. “This is about a great night to have fun with the possibility to honor and help those in need due to the disasters in Mexico and Puerto Rico.”
From 8 p.m. to 9 p.m., the Mambo Pa Ti Dance Company begins by offering easy-to-follow lessons. The rest of the night brings about free flowing dance by DJ Mambo for people of all ages and skill levels after a live band performance from Robertico y Su Alebreke.
A rotating cast of food trucks brought by FoodTrucksIN will provide food for sale. Revival Brewing, Ravenous Brewing beer, and other beverages will also be available for purchase, courtesy of Laughing Gorilla Catering. The City of Central Falls has brought about the second year of Salsa Nights in large thanks to its sponsors: Navigant Credit Union, Roger Williams University School of Continuing Education, Blackstone Valley Community Health Center, Storage America, and Uber.
Since its establishment last year, Salsa Nights have hailed people from all parts of the state participated in the festivities. The events have served as a staple to provide a local, safe, and family fun night out.
