As the calendar turned to May, the city of Longmont was abuzz with excitement this weekend for the 20th Annual Longmont Cinco de Mayo celebration. The festivities held at Roosevelt Park have become a much-anticipated annual event and this year was no different.
An array of custom cars and bikes filled half of Roosevelt Park. Attention to detail was evident in every aspect of the event—from the food to the dazzling art and jewelry showcased by local artisans. The festival was alive with color, creativity and talent. Even a young puppeteer with a fascinating performance delighted both young and old.
Entertainment and vendors, information booths galore. Free activities for kids, a car show to adore. The "Mexican Standoff" Break Dance Competition was a thrilling sight for all ages surrounded by a large crowd and on the other side of the park was a food truck feast of flavors, tempting every appetite.
The celebration provided an opportunity for people from all walks of life to come together, learn from one another and revel in the diverse culture that makes Longmont unique.
