Cinco de Mayo Celebration
Mark your calendar, bring your family, and invite your friends to the 44th Annual Cinco de Mayo Celebration on Saturday, May 5, 2018.
The celebration will begin with a parade at 10 a.m. on Sixth Street, from Merrill Street to Rimpau Avenue. Check out the dancers, marching units, low-riders, antique cars, and school children of all ages that participate in the parade.
After the parade, head over to the fiesta taking place at Corona City Park. Opening ceremonies will begin at 12 p.m. at the Fiesta Band Shell where the new queen will be announced and trophies will be awarded to parade participants.
The fiesta will feature an assortment of Mexican food, along with other ethnic foods served by local non-profit groups and businesses. Entertainment will consist of Bands and Mariachi groups, Folklorico Dancers, Latin Salsa, Hard Rock and Oldies.
The children will be well-entertained at the Children’s Fun Zone as they play and jump around in fun bouncers, ride the ponies, and play at the game booths.
This celebration is more than just a parade, it is about the community coming together to support the efforts of the committee to raise money for scholarships. The parade and fiesta is the finishing touch that makes this all possible. “Muchas gracias” to all the volunteers who dedicate their personal time to this annual celebration and to the sponsors and the community for their support.
