Description: Join in the upcoming 8th Annual Cinco de Mayo Celebration, being held Saturday, May 4, 2013, from 11:30am to 4:30pm at Crescent Avenue between E. 187th St. & Belmont Avenue.
Produced by Marketing & Advertising Solutions Inc. (MAS), and proudly Sponsored by C-Town Supermarkets New Era Foods One, Inc., Niteline Radio, Verizon FIOS, and Amerigroup, this event brings the community together by promoting diversity through cultural celebration.
Founded in 2005 by the non-profit organization El Grupo Unidos de Belmont Inc., the annual Cinco de Mayo Celebration is the only event in the Bronx that celebrates Mexican heritage and pride, and continues to be made possible by the support of various donors and sponsors. The Unidos organization seeks to assist civically active school-aged residents of the Tremont and Belmont neighborhoods by providing scholarships to those students seeking to attend colleges or universities throughout the tri-state area, including Pennsylvania.
Last year's Cinco de Mayo Celebration was a great success, boasting large name sponsors such as Goya, Coca-Cola, Boar's Head, Snapple, and Health Plus/Amerigroup, with over 5,000 attendees! A Live Mariachi band was the highlight of the event, with a plethora of children's activities including clowns, face painting, and free giveaways. Free blood pressure screenings were also offered.
Stay tuned for highlights & details.
