The Punta Explosion is a celebration of cultural unity and diversity. The explosion will be the best cultural event of the year, for all cultures and ages.

The explosion is brought to you by the Central American Community and local businesses. The musical lineup is centered around the mainstream music of Central America, “Punta Rock,” the contemporary electronic offshoot of an ancestral rhythm and dance of the Garifuna people of Central America performed during festive occasions. Punta Rock became powerful by carrying messages to develop cultural awareness and to educate. Originality and culture are the basic principles. Punta Rock is a strong force in the process of developing cultural awareness and strengthening national identity for all ethnic groups of Central America.                      

A wide variety of vendors will be in attendance, selling everything from arts and crafts to traditional Central American foods.     

See Map of Ceylon Playground (Park) on Mapquest.
