I stopped by the Fiestas Patrias event in downtown Santa Ana today. Boy was it crowded! Everyone was having a great time.
The exhibits are set up all along Fourth Street, or Calle Cuatro. Vendors included a dizzying array of major corporations, such as Wells Fargo, Albertsons and State Farm Insurance, and smaller vendors selling toys, jewelry, hats and clothing. And there were a ton of food vendors too.
The Fiestas Patrias parade is scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday, Sep. 19, at 4 pm.
Disneyland is getting involved this year too, for the very first time. Mickey and Minnie Mouse will be serving as Children’s Grand Marshals.
