Celebrate Mexican Heritage at May 19 Festival

Around Town

mexfestSalsa dancing, a taco competition and games for kids are just some of the fun activities planned for the seventh Cerveza Estrella Jalisco Fiesta de Mayo. This celebration of Mexican culture and heritage put on by La Isla magazine will be held from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. May 19 at Shelter Cove Community Park on Hilton Head Island.

Live music, cold beer, margaritas and food vendors from many Latin American countries will be on hand, and groups and businesses that support the Lowcountry’s Hispanic community will have booths throughout the festival. And don’t miss the Battle of the Tacos, which will determine the best taco in the region — attendees can taste them all and then vote for the best using the ticket they receive at the festival entrance. Come with an empty stomach and may the best taco win!

Cost is $7 per person; kids ages 10 and younger get in free. For more information, call 843-681-2393 or email andrea@laislamagazine. com.
