Ballet folklorico competition, carnival add to excitement of Anaheim’s Cinco de Mayo festival
Anaheim celebrated Cinco de Mayo with a four-day festival that lasted through the holiday on Sunday, May 5.
The popular community celebration dates back nearly 50 years to when it was a small fiesta organized by parents and staff at Fremont Junior High and Anaheim High. Out of that beginning grew Fiesta United, which has been organizing the event in partnership with the city of Anaheim at La Palma Park for many years.
The weekend included a ballet folklorico competition, entertainment, a carnival and lots of good food.
