UNIVISION PRESENTS THE SIXTH ANNUAL LA CONDESA CINCO DE MAYO DOWNTOWN BLOCK PARTY
PERFORMANCES BY CELSIUS, VITERA, MARIACHI RELÁMPAGO, DJ CHICKEN GEORGE & CHORIZO FUNK, ESTE VATO, AND MORE
La Condesa is announcing today the Sixth Annual Cinco de Mayo Downtown Block Party on Sunday, May 4, 2014 from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m., in celebration of the rich heritage and culture of Mexico. The annual downtown festival covers the entire block of West 2nd Street between Guadalupe and San Antonio, and will feature an array of food and beverages provided by La Condesa and other local vendors.
This year's Block Party is again all ages and welcomes guests to participate in a variety of free activities for the whole family: face painting, balloon makers, dancing and live music from Este Vato, Bombasta, Dj Chicken George & Chorizo Funk, Celsius, Vitera, and more. Last year's festival grew to more than 5,000 in attendance, and is expected to continue that growth again this year.
"Last year's event was so spectacular falling on a Sunday, that we decided to do it again," says La Condesa owner Jesse Herman. "We're so proud to steward this community event and can't believe it's been six years already."
La Condesa will be serving their popular Mexican street food including grilled Mexican street corn, a selection of tacos along with their famous margaritas, aqua frescas and beverages from event sponsors Cazadores Tequila, Dos XX, and Tecate.
This neighborhood party is ideal for the whole family, with ample activities to enjoy. Area shops will also participate in the festivities featuring special gifts, novelties, and sweets to go along with the fun. Parking will be available at all downtown garages.
