Sunday To-Do: Cinco de Mayo

Posted By on Sun, May 1, 2011 at 11:30 AM


10 a.m., River Market Pavilions. Free until noon, $10 from noon to 3 p.m., $20 after 3 p.m.

The Cinco de Mayo family fiesta returns for the 13th year on Sunday. The day-long event — and I mean day-long, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. — features homemade cuisine from Mexico and Central America, arts and crafts, games for los ninos and non-stop live music from the Ballet Folklorico Reflejos de Mexico, the Mariachi América, the Band F-5 and the Chicos Style from Dallas. The night ends with headliners Los Marineros del Norte (right) performing its enormously popular brand of norteño, a peppy, rural polka full of guitar, accordion and, in this band's case, saxophone skronk.
