The Puerto Rican flag, with its distinctive lone white star, blue triangle, and red stripes, has been popping up more frequently around town. With the infusion of that island flavor into our Southwestern mix, expect the joyful exclamations of "Wepa!" to fly during the third annual Puerto Rican Festival and Concert. Puerto Ricans' indigenous Taíno, Spanish, and African roots will be represented with plenty of savory/spicy food and music, including the strains of Bronx salsa singer Ray de la Paz, whos visiting Arizona for the first time.
