“El 18” Times Three ! ! !


Yes, we have three separate events, in Southern California, for The 18th of September this year! All three events should be filled with music, food and dance – all very Chilean. Come out and show your patriotic colors!! Of the three events, it is the event in San Bernardino which is a fundraiser for a cause in Chile.

These 2012 – “18th de Septiembre” events will be listed below with their respective flyers and divided by a line. Fundi2  listed them by chronological date order. The event that is to be held on the weekend before “El 18”  is posted first and so forth, with the last event, on the weekend after “El 18” (almost like a “18 chico”) is listed at the end.

Have fun, Fundi2 hopes you make all or some of these events – they surely bring you a little closer to the homeland and give you a chance to meet up with old friends and/or a chance to make new ones!!

All events are posted on the following Facebook page of Chile America Sur de California
