PALMDALE – You are invited to a colorful celebration of Mexican culture and heritage in Palmdale this Sunday.
The inaugural Cinco De Mayo festival will be held from noon to 9 p.m., Sunday May 4 at Desert Sands Park, located at 39117 3rd Street East in Palmdale. General admission is $5, and kids under 12 are free.
The family-friendly event will include live musical performances, folklorico dancers, traditional Mexican fare, and activities for the kids, according to organizer Sam Roman.
“Most people used to drive down below to celebrate Cinco de Mayo because we didn’t have anything like that here,” Roman said. “This year we’re celebrating right here in the Antelope Valley.”
The inaugural Cinco de Mayo festival is presented by the Tavera Foundation.
It will feature dance performances by Grupo Folklorico Antelope Valley, as well at music by Los Incomparables de Tijuana, Los Tajadores De Sinaloa, Jesus Ramon Cordova, Skuadron, Luz del Vale, Yolanda Meza and many more. View a flyer for this event here.
