What began as a Walker’s Point street festival circa 1977 is now an expansive, three-day taste of Mexican culture. The fiesta will feature regional cuisine from a variety of local sources, with vendors and exhibits involving music, history, heritage, and other forms of entertainment. Aside from a predicted rise in attendance, new this year is a Science Expo and Pok-Ta-Pok, an ancient Mayan ball game with unique historical roots.
