The City of Inglewood honored Hispanic Heritage Month with a huge cultural festival, on September 16, 2017 at Crozier Middle School. The festival celebrated and recognized the histories, cultures, and contributions of Latino Americans.
Over 2,500 came out to the fun-filled event, which featured live performances by Ballet Folklorico Flor de Mayo, Pedrito Fregoso, Grupo Folklorico Macias, Bob Desena Latin Jazz Band, La Sonora Dinamita and two-time GRAMMY Award winner, Mariachi Divas. This concert was sponsored by the Office of Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas.
A classic car show, featuring pre-1970 vehicles, was a big draw. Over 60 vehicles were on display. Interactive carnival-style games, face painting, arts and crafts, and artisan booths rounded out the day’s activities. Attendees were kept in-the-know through information resources relative to employment, health, finances and voter registration.
Delicious food was served by Fiesta Martin Mexican Grill, Pupusas Rita, Del’s Fish Tacos, La Michoacana Ricas Nieves, Woods Coffee Company and Tamale Fiesta.
Radio personality Josefa Salinas served as the Mistress of Ceremonies and CeeCee the Mamacita, Radio Personality on 93.5 KDay served as Co-Host for the event. A great time was had by all!
