CHICAGO (CBS) -- Crowds turned out to celebrate Puerto Rican culture, and get vaccinated against COVID-19, at the 28th Fiesta Boricua in Humboldt Park this weekend.
There was food and all kinds of Puerto Rican music and dance at the event – from bomba to salsa and beyond.
To top it off, there was also a back-to-school carnival with plenty of rides, games, and gifts for kids.
People 12 and older were eligible for free COVID-19 vaccines at the event, under the slogan "Protect Yourself, Protect Our Community."
Mayor Lori Lightfoot attended the event on Saturday.
The fun was to continue until 8 p.m. Sunday on Division Street between Western and California Avenues – a stretch known as Paseo Boricua.
