On Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Children's Museum of the East End will hold its fourth annual feria — a fun-packed festival to celebrate the East End's Latino culture. Families with children of all ages can enjoy a day of traditional cuisine, music, and art.

Entrance is free, but a tasting ticket to sample the variety of foods available can be purchased at the event for $5.

According to Liz Bard, the museum's director of education, there will be representatives from over half a dozen Latin American countries, all wearing colorful traditional costumes and offering their delicious food, including empanadas, tostadas, rice and beans, and tres leches cakes.

"We like to say these are small bites," said Ms. Bard, "but given the warmth of the people from these countries, they are more like mini meals."

CMEE is located at 376 Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike in Bridgehampton.
