Latino dancers, a mariachi band, and los caballeros; either we are all vacationing in Mexico, or it is time for Klamath Falls’ 8th Annual Cinco de Mayo Celebration where the vacation comes to us. The culture of Mexico includes a strong focus on food and there will be plenty of it. During the celebration Saturday, May 5th , Veterans Memorial Park will be filled with taco trucks, mangos on a stick, ice cream and more.
It's an appreciation of diversity for our community. Last year, a couple thousand people attended. This year will include a parade down Main Street, with police and fire department floats, high school dancers, Klamath Union High School's marching band, Henley High School's color guard, and a car carrying Miss Cinco de Mayo. Miss Cinco de Mayo is a high school student selected through a scholarship program for Hispanic students. The festival will be held in Veterans Park from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., featuring food and wares for sale, live music, and dancing.
