La Plaza & Community Stage
presented by the Hispanic Forum of Mesquite

As you stroll through La Plaza you’ll get a glimpse of Hispanic culture. You’ll be able to eat authentic Mexican food – Elote (corn in a cup) and Tostadas, watch traditional Mexican dances and play some fun games. There will also be a Piñata for the kids to break open (Saturday at noon & 4:30). La Plaza games are no more than $2 per play.

We’ll also have the annual Jalapeno Eating Contest on Saturday, April 26 at 5:00 p.m. Winners will receive a gift certificate (First Place = $75; Second place = $50; Third Place = $25) and a trophy. You can register now by emailing Rachel Lopez at [email protected]
