Music was a strong component of their presentation as well, featuring sounds from all over the continent. In addition to local artists performing the vibrant sounds of Latin America, a number of musicians were brought directly from their native countries for the pleasure of the attendees to the festival. The friendly representatives of each country were dressed in traditional costumes to bring to life their own distinctive cultures. In these garments, the representatives offered attendees goods and crafts from their countries to attract the big crowds that rolled by.

In particular, Cuba displayed a beautiful stand where one could find images of the island nation, its dances, handcrafts, music, and general culture. The representatives of the Embassy offered a degustation of rum, pamphlets and pictures of the most typical goods from the country. The representatives also set up a table where passers-by could play the traditional game of dominoes.
