Cinco de mayo – San Diego Style!

Cinco de mayo is just around the corner and Old Town will be back at it with their 29th Annual Fiesta Old Town Cinco de Mayo presented by Corona & Corona Light. The 3 day FREE Event takes place on Friday, May 4th from 5:00 PM – 10:00 PM, Saturday, May 5th from 11:00 AM – 10:00 PM, and Sunday, May 6th from 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

This festival kicks off on Friday with a Motocross Exhiition produced by Red Bull where spectators can watch the riders do some amazing stunts! The Red Bull DJs will keep the fiesta going strong all day and through the evening. Also, you’ll want to head to the Old Town Historic State Park to experience a world-renowned multi-cultural choral concert by Misa Azteca from 7:00 PM until 8:45 PM.

Saturday events will include a carnival, petting zoo and educational activities for los niños. For the adults, the beer garden with ice cold Coronas and the high-end tequilla sampling area will help to get the party started. Music will be blasting all day on one of the 3 main stages where you can hear authentic mariachis, Latin rock n roll, DJs and more! There will also be the Red Bull “Fiesta de Futbol”, where professional soccer players go head to head in special exhibition games exclusive to the Fiesta Old Town Cinco de Mayo!

Sunday’s festivities will include more live entertainment, historical enactments played out, lots of vendor booths (where you can pick up some great bargains on jewelery to sombreros) and plenty of food to go around! Be sure to visit the museums and specialty stores, take a ride in a stagecoach and emerse yourself in the history and culture of Mexico!

There will be no time to siesta, as activities, great food, dancing, mariachis and other live entertainment will be rolling strong from late morning into late at night!
