La Sonora Dinamita with Vilma Diaz Take Center Stage at Carson’s Cinco de Mayo Celebration on May 1

An all-afternoon fiesta featuring live entertainment and a variety of fun activities will mark the City of Carson’s 45th annual Cinco de Mayo celebration scheduled for Sunday, May 1.

“The City of Carson is thrilled to once again celebrate the historic occasion of Cinco De Mayo with an in-person grand fiesta for the entire community to enjoy,” said Mayor Lula Davis-Holmes.

The fiesta will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Carson Park, located at 21411 Orrick Avenue in Carson. The event is open to people of all ages, and admission is free.

La Sonora Dinamita with Vilma Diaz will lead this year’s entertainment line-up along with Corazon de Mana and Mariachi Santa Monica. Also featured are local talents from in and around the surrounding community.

Aside from non-stop entertainment, the fiesta also features a wide variety of food booths, game booths, arts and crafts, a car show, and cultural displays.

Cinco de Mayo is more than a celebration of a single, glorious moment in the long history of Mexico’s struggle for independence with their victory over the French at the “Batalla de Puebla,” in Puebla, Mexico on May 5, 1862. It is a reaffirmation of self-determination, a universal aspiration shared by freedom-loving people throughout the United States and the world.
