It was East Hampton at its best on Saturday night, May 4, at the Neighborhood House where the community came together to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. This was the second annual fest, hosted and organized by the East Hampton Democratic Committee for the benefit of Project Most — over $5000 was raised!
And what a celebration it was: A full house, toddlers to seniors, from every neighborhood in town. Pinatas and games for the children and prizes galore. Fabulous food and drink — tacos, posole, flan, and more — prepared and donated by dozens of local residents. Music provided by three live bands, and a D.J. Dancers in authentic costume. And then, all the guests took over the dance floor and raised the temperature in the hall!
Yes, East Hampton is famous for its splendid beaches and the summer social scene. But what should be recognized as exceptional are the people who have been working together to make our town a true community for all.
