2014 Old Town Fiesta Cinco de Mayo

Join us for the annual Cinco de Mayo Celebration in Old Town San Diego

"The 31st Annual Old Town Fiesta Cinco De Mayo is the largest Cinco de Mayo celebration north of the border. This three-day fiesta has an incredible variety of festivities and entertainment for the whole family to enjoy. Don't miss out on this opportunity to be surrounded by the history and culture of Mexico!

Two event stages will entertain with sizzling flamenco beats, Norteno flairs and traditional Mariachi music. Explore the museums, specialty shops, and the lively streets of the bustling Mercado where you can purchase an array of merchandise: handmade leather pieces, beautiful jewelry and many more treasures."

We will meet in front of the Old Immaculate Conception Church (corner of San Diego Ave. and Twiggs St.) at 8:30AM, do the group photo and start shooting afterward. The Folkloriko Dancing Competition will begin at 9:00AM. The actual event does not start until 11:00AM, but by starting early we will have less problems parking, get better photos without crowds and also get better photos of the people in costumes. There will be many photo-ops on this shoot.

It will be difficult for us to stay together in a large groups, so we will probably break into smaller groups. Because of the nature of the shoot there will be no restrictions on the number of members who can attend and guests.

Any questions or comments, contact Walter via email. There will probably be several updates. Here is alink to the event:

    I'll be there but later. I have a function to goto in the AM. So hopefully I'll run into you folks later (probably take me 1/2 a day to find parking by the time I get down there 11:00 or so) - ugh.

      I missed you guys BUT I found a secret parking area. The Caltrans building (**right across the street-facing you when you are leaving Old Town on Juan St. near the Trolly station**) apparently is open for parking...all day. I did it. The location on their "Extra free parking signs was farther away.

    A fund day with a great group of photographers. It was a pleasure to photograph the dancers. The lighting was quite harsh and it was a little on the warm side, but we PPS photographers are up to any challenge!
