Neighborhood locals said they were surprised to see a large stage and speakers, food vendors, trucks and scores of police in the park on Sunday for a televised concert they claim flew under the community’s radar.
Thousands of Latin music fans packed into the park to listen to such artists such as Delexilio, Los Hermanos Rosario and Eddy Herrera, among others.
