Cinco de Mayo Fiesta 2011
Today might be "Cinco de Mayo"...but the 14th Annual Cinco de Mayo Fiesta kicks off tomorrow, with a big party for sponsors, local dignitaries, volunteers and the media. Marketing Chairman Everardo Recendiz says the public is invited to downtown Shreveport's Festival Plaza Saturday for all the fun activities -- like the Chihuahua Challenge, Jalapeno-Eating Contest and Health Fair. He says something new this year is the Fiesta Car Show, which is expected to be included in the annual event. The festivities get underway at 10 Saturday morning.
