Cha cha cha, rumba, mambo and the conga — what’s not to like about the Cuba Va! “Tropicana” Pavilion?

Traditional dancers keep the crowd entertained as great Cuban cuisine is served up throughout the night. The Centro Caboto Centre is hosting this party during Week 1 of Folklorama, which offers guests the opportunity to eat their meals out on the patio.

Inside the centre, visitors are treated to the same delicious delicacies and can finish off their meal with a mojito, Cuban Libre or refreshing mango juice.

A special cigar roller from Cuba was also flown in to show the public how a traditional Cuban cigar is made.

Showtimes are nightly at 6:45 p.m., 8:15 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. Late night parties are Friday from 11 p.m. to 2 a.m. and Saturday from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. An early show is offered Saturday at 5:15 p.m.
