Several organizations joined the Corona Library for a cultural Earth Day event at Flushing Meadows Corona Park on Saturday.

In an effort to bring awareness to the changes needed in order to help the environment, there were several performances from groups representing Latin American culture. Children of all ages performed live music and dances led by the Sisa Pakari Cultural Center Inc. Director Fanny Guadalupe.

The community also came out in full force with signs asking for people to take a pledge to save water and reduce plastic use. Some children even donned outfits made out of newspapers.

Talea Wufka, candidate for the 35th Assembly District, attended the event to connect with the local community.

“This is so important, to have representation from the different countries and have the children come out to support the planet,” Wufka said. “I’m all about culture and events like this is about getting to really know the people of the community.”
