For the fourth year in a row, Dancing on The Streets (D.O.T.S. Fest) will be held in downtown Reading on Saturday, October 8, beginning at noon. You’re invited to be part of this free, family-fun dance festival at the Abraham Lincoln Hotel, 100 North Fifth Street. The event, in celebration of the start of National Hispanic Heritage Month, will include an attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records for salsa dancers on the street.

New this year will be a carnival kickoff with multicultural costumes. And topping the list of musical entertainment will be Oro Solido, a New York-based merengue group. Formed in 1994, Oro Solido has shared the stage with artists such as 50 Cent, LeAnn Rimes, Marc Anthony, Tito Puente, Johnny Ventura, and The Temptations, according to Wikipedia.

Also performing at the festival will be Tony Sunshine, G5, Pancho Bongo, TRNDSTTRS, and several dance groups.
