I know…I know…you can’t think past this Saturday, must less a Saturday in October, right?!  Well, pull out your calendar NOW and write in BIG BOLD Letters….Fiesta! in Linn Park!

As always, we will feature our ever popular Cultural Village so our guests can learn and experience the cultures of the many Hispanic/Latino countries.  In addition, we’ll have the Family Village, Health & Wellness Village, Community Village, Sports Village,  Food Village, Dance Stage and Main Stage.

McDonalds is returning as Fiesta’s Presenting  Sponsor for a 2nd year and once again bringing their Fiesta Tour to the event.  I was talking with local McDonald’s owner, Santiago Negre a few weeks ago and he told me the entire tour has been revamped and will be even more outstanding than last year!  We really are so very grateful to Santiago and his brother, Russell, for bringing this wonderful addition to Birmingham for a second year in a row.  It’s really quite a treat to see the tour and all the Hispanic music icons featured.  The Negre brothers have really made their presence felt in our community and continue to do great things to impact lives.
