Hey, there’s Dominicans in Minnesota! There are other people who like playing dominos and can dance the merengue without going to dance classes for it.
These photos are from the second annual Dominican picnic in Eagan’s Central Park on Saturday, August 24.
I’m Dominican and when I moved here, I was pretty sure that I was the only Dominican in the entire state. We Dominicans have slowly been organizing to have more of a presence here in Minnesota. There’s a few of us from the Dominican Republic, but it’s important for us to share about our culture and let other Dominicans know they are not alone.
