Cinco de Mayo to be held May 3

The second annual Cinco de Mayo Fiesta will be held on Saturday, May 3 from 12 p.m. – 9 p.m. in downtown Dixon. During the celebration, First Street will be closed between Galena Ave. and Hennepin Ave. After a very successful first year in 2007, Salamandra Restaurant agreed to help continue the tradition for the city of Dixon by helping to present the fiesta again in 2008 with co-sponsor Dixon Main Street.

“Dixon Main Street is excited to co-sponsor the Second Annual Cinco de Mayo celebration again this year with Salamandra,” Executive Director Josh Albrecht said. “Last year was a huge success, and it is great for our community to celebrate the cultural diversity of our city.”

This year’s event features plenty of entertainment, including Mariachi Juvenil San Francisco, Ballet Folkloric Imagen Mexicana and Ballet Folkloric Ay! Jalisco. There also will be piñatas and games for kids.

And to top it off, a variety of Mexican food will be featured, including 20 different salsas created by salsa master and Salamandra owner Juana Ayala. An outdoor beer garden will be featured, along with a variety of specialty margaritas.
