The entertainment will include five-time Grammy-winner Little Joe, Los Cadetes de Linares, Grupo Aztlan, Las Estrellas, Eli Lugo, and Guadalupe Centers’ high school and middle school mariachi bands. In addition, there will be a variety of kid-friendly activities, including bounce houses, pony rides, inflatables and face painting.

food vendors selling ceviche, papudas, fruit and tacos. Non-food vendors will sell items such as artisanal huaraches, clothing, ceramic pots and bowls, jewelry, custom shirts and hats.
