Mr. Rueda increased his popularity with the release of the very popular disc entailed Paz en Este Amor, which landed his music on the Billboard charts in both the Regional Mexican Airplay and Hot Latin Tracks categories.

In addition, Fiestas Patrias will include its annual parade on Sunday, September 13 from 4 to 6 PM with the parade route on Main Street starting on 15th Street and continues until it ends in the Downtown area on Santa Ana Blvd. The parade every year attracts thousands of spectators. The theme of this year’s Fiestas Patrias Parade is “Heroes and Champions of Independence.”
The parade will honor the heroes that help bring independence to Mexico and celebrate the local champions in various sports. High School marching bands, horses and floats representing cultural pride from Mexico will be featured. Council Member Angelica Amezcua is a big supporter of the parade and stated, “Fiestas Patrias Parade in Santa Ana is like the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New York City. Two great cities celebrating the beauty of Culture and tradition.”
