Coming from Minnesota and Wisconsin, the sounds of Los Guerreros de el Amor, Banda La Fortalezza and Escuadron Musical will fill the air, delight the ears and get feet moving. Be prepared to kick up your heels!
Mexica Yolotl, a Minneapolis-based traditional Aztec dance group will demonstrate the heritage and beautiful pre-Hispanic cultures of Mexico through their stunningly beautiful Aztec dance and dress. Mexica Yolotl, meaning Mexican Heart, is under the teaching of Chief Tenoch Cortes España from Axiochiapan, Morelos, Mexico.
Local dancers will share their talent when Martin and Andrea Lopez Estrada, having recently emigrated from Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico take the stage. Martin and Andrea will present traditional or folclórico dances of Campeche and Jalisco, Mexico.
Tacos, burritos, pupusas, enchiladas, tortas, nachos, elotes, fruta, tamales and more will be served up by a number of local Mexican and Central American food vendors, promising to leave those who indulge more than satisfied.
The Kids’ Zone is sure to entertain and delight younger participants with piñatas, face painting, inflatables and more surprises.
Fiesta-goers will also have a chance to win cash by purchasing tickets for a cash-raffle with half of the sales going to the raffle winner and half to Caminando Juntos, a ministry of the Presentation Sisters with newer Latino immigrants in Sioux Falls and the surrounding area. Drawing will be held at 7 p.m. the day of the Fiesta. The Cinco de Mayo Fiesta is a benefit for Caminando Juntos and all proceeds go to support this ministry.
