Revelers Can Expect to Be Entertained by Aztec Dancers, Grupo la Rosa Folklorico Dancers, and Charro (Mexican Dancing Horses)

The celebration continues with a lively street festival where revelers can expect to be entertained by Aztec Dancers, Grupo La Rosa Folklorico Dancers, and Charro (Mexican Dancing Horses). Musical accompaniment will be provided by the Venice High School Band, alongside performances by the Santa Monica Cheerleaders.

Classic Cars and Lowriders will parade through the streets, accompanied by clowns, piñatas, and a delectable array of Authentic Mexican Food Trucks. Live entertainment will keep the crowd grooving, with the Rythym Band delivering old school funk music, complemented by the tunes of D.J. Mango and the lyrical stylings of Baby Dog Rapper, straight out of Venice.

Informational booths and vendors will offer insights and delights, with a diverse range of organizations and businesses represented, including the Venice Mexican American Traquero Monument, AmVets Post 2, Venice Family Clinic, Santa Monica College, Kaiser, Venice Kush, Venice Paparazzi, Venice Family Community Housing, Councilmember Traci Parks, Lupitas Tacos, Tacos de Valiii, Oaxacana Taco Truck, and the Growin up in Venice Brand, among others.For tickets and more information, go to https://www.eventbrite.com/e/historical-venice-cinco-de-mayo-parade-festival-tickets-859593987757#:~:text=About%20this%20event&text=Come%20out%20and%20join%20us,(N)%20to%20Rose%20Ave..
