A Taste of Jaltemba Fiesta 2012

Dave Easby - Amigos de Jaltemba
February 29, 2012

Fiesta 2012 will be held on Saturday, March 10, from 3:00 pm until midnight at the Salon de Eventos – Real de Peña - in La Peñita de Jaltemba, formerly known as La Cancha de Futbol.

The event will feature a range of local musicians and other entertainers and some great food and drink. Food and drink are extra, of course.

If you have ever been to a "Taste" event up north, you know how much fun they can be – sampling food from different establishments. If you haven't, this is a great opportunity to try one – Mexican style. Food vendors will offer everything from ribs to arrachera, tostadas to tortas.

And, on the entertainment side, the event will feature a little bit of everything - non-stop entertainment from afternoon until night, including the Perez Brothers, Manuel and Friends, folkloric dancers from our local school and a few surprises.
