This year’s event promises to be bigger than ever and is themed as “Unity Through Diversity”.
Again it will be located between S. 9th & MLK Way S. and S. 13th & MLK Way S. Family-friendly activities, food, games, and music will be featured in People’s Park all day from 11 am to 7 pm. Varied food will be available from vendors, as well as arts and crafts.
Newly added this year will be two crowd-pleasers: a quilt show which symbolizes the theme of “Unity Through Diversity”, as well as a locally-produced film festival. Music will be continuous on four stages. Back by popular demand, a fashion show will feature clothing from local merchants. Central Latino will present a procession with costumed representations from 21 Latin cultural empires. Community Health Care will offer free wellness and dental exams. Plans for a car show sponsored by the The Blacktop Rebels Car Club are well underway with more car entries welcome.
