Balboa Park Cinco de Mayo
Balboa Park Cinco de MayoBuilding on the incredible success of last year's inaugural event, the Cinco de Mayo Celebration in Balboa Park is expanding to bring even more Mexican-themed music and dance performances, arts and crafts, and family-friendly activities. Set within both the historic Plaza de Panama and Spreckels Organ Pavilion, this year's celebration once again features colorful horseback riders, traditional dance groups, a fashion show, strolling mariachis, hands-on activity booths for kids, authentic arts and crafts demonstrations by artisans from Mexico, food trucks, and a free concert event featuring Jarabe Mexicano.

The popular local ballet folklorico group, La Fiesta Danzantes de San Diego, kicks off the day's entertainment in the Spreckels Organ Pavilion at 11:20 AM following the 11:00 AM opening ceremony, while Mariachi Victoria de San Diego performs in the Plaza de Panama at 11:25 a.m. At 12 noon, the day's signature horseback procession, with Escaramuza Charra las Golondrinas and Asociación Charros Herencia Charra led by a floreador, enters the Plaza.

Additional entertainment in the Plaza de Panama will be provided throughout the day by Mariachi Victoria and the Paris Escovedo Band, performing Latin jazz. The Spreckels Organ Pavilion will feature more dance performances by Fiesta Danzantes and Wa-Kushmá Mexican Folk Production, as well as a fashion showcase of traditional Mexican dress from various regions. At 5 p.m. the San Diego State University Drumline will lead a procession from the Plaza to the Organ Pavilion for the free concert event featuring Jarabe Mexicano. (See schedule below for details.)

Other highlights of the day include Huichol artisans from Nayarit, Mexico, demonstrating various traditional art techniques and a hands-on bracelet-making activity, sponsored by the Mexican Consulate. Additional activity booths will be hosted by Canal 12 Televisa, the Spanish Village Art Center, San Diego Public Library, San Diego County Fair, House of Mexico, San Diego Natural History Museum, and more. The Fab Trailers vintage photo booth will also be on hand to help attendees commemorate the festive day.

The day's food offerings include a variety of cuisines from some of San Diego's best gourmet food trucks parked along the El Prado walkway. In addition, the Prado Restaurant will host live music and family activities, and serve street tacos, margaritas, and cerveza on their Garden Terrace from 12:00 noon to 5:00 PM
