“Join us for a celebration of Hispanic culture on Cinco de Mayo,” Commissioner McCurdy said. “With free food, music, traditional dances, games, pinatas and more, it will be a great evening for families and the community.”
“I am so excited to celebrate with the community and also provide opportunities for our residents to be vaccinated,” Ward 3 Councilwoman Diaz said. “Everyone is invited to join us for some family fun.”
The festival is free to attend, and the vaccines will be provided on a first-come, first served basis while supplies last.
