On Cinco de Mayo there is something to get the party started for everyone of all ages. Those of you who are looking for a cerveza filled day will want to head over to the beer garden for an ice cold Corona or Corona Light. For the little ninos and ninas there will be a carnival, a petting zoo complete with pony rides and a plethora of interactive and educational activities provided by non-profit organizations! You’ll want to cruise by the tricked out low riders to check out their modifications, creative paint jobs and their impressive hydraulics! Everywhere you go music will be playing and you can salsa over to one of  the main stages to hear authentic mariachis, Latin rock n roll, DJs and more! How about a free soccer game? 

On Sunday continue the celebration with more live entertainment and keep your day mellow by sauntering down El Mercado to bargain for sombreros, handmade leather pieces, beautiful jewelry and many more treasures that will line San Diego Avenue. 

There won’t be any time for a siesta with so many specialty stores and museums to explore in Historic Old Town. Latin fever is spreading like wildfire and you won’t want to miss out on this opportunity to be surrounded by the history and culture of Mexico!  For additional information please call 619.291.4903 or visit
