GRAMMY AWARD WINNER MARIACHI DIVAS DE CINDY SHEA TAKE CENTER STAGE AT CARSON’S CINCO DE MAYO CELEBRATION ON MAY 6
An all-afternoon fiesta featuring live entertainment and a variety of fun activities will mark the City of Carson’s 42nd annual Cinco de Mayo celebration scheduled for Saturday, May 6. “Each year, the City of Carson celebrates the historic occasion of Cinco De Mayo with a grand fiesta for the entire community to enjoy,” said Mayor Albert Robles. The fiesta will take place from 12 noon to 5 p.m. at Carson Park, located at 21411 Orrick Avenue in Carson. The event is open to people of all ages, and ADMISSION IS FREE. Mariachi Divas de Cindy Shea will lead this year’s entertainment line-up along with Sabor de Mexico, Pasion Latina Compton, and Tease Band. Also featured are local talents from the Mariachi Academy of Carson, Maria’s Dance Studio, Grupo Folklorico Faisan, and Calas Park Alma de Oro. Aside from non-stop entertainment, the fiesta also features a wide variety of food booths, game booths, arts and crafts, a car show, boxing exhibitions and cultural displays. Cinco de Mayo is more than a celebration of a single, glorious moment in the long history of Mexico’s struggle for independence with their victory over the French at the “Batalla de Puebla,” in Puebla, Mexico on May 5, 1862. It is a reaffirmation of self-determination, a universal aspiration shared by freedom-loving people throughout the United States and the world.
Cinco de Mayo is one of the cultural events sponsored by the City of Carson to celebrate the diversity of its population. Carson is home to more than 35,000 Latin-Americans, making up about 35 percent of the city’s population.
