Banda Maguey and La Sonora Dinamita with Vilma Diaz Take Center Stage at Carson’s Cinco de Mayo Celebration on May 6

An all-afternoon fiesta featuring live entertainment and a variety of fun activities will mark the City of Carson’s 46th annual Cinco de Mayo celebration scheduled Saturday, May 6.
“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.
Banda Maguey and La Sonora Dinamita with Vilma Diaz will lead this year’s entertainment line-up along with Mariachi Santa Monica. Also featured are local talents from 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. Mexico’s victory over the French at the “Batalla de Puebla,” in Puebla, Mexico on May 5, 1862, reaffirmed a universal aspiration shared by freedom-loving people throughout the United States and the world: self-determination.
