Fiesta in Florissant 2012

Saturday, June 23rd and Sunday, June 24th Hispanic Festival St. Louis presents the annual Fiesta in Florissant, starting at 10 am on Saturday at Knights of Columbus Park, 50 Saint Francois Street, Florissant, MO.

Fiesta in Florissant is a two-day celebration will feature non-stop entertainment with live Latino Bands and Folkloric dancers from various countries.  There will also be a wide variety of foods and beverages from Latin & South America available for purchase such as tamales, tacos and empanadas.  Other attractions include folk arts and crafts, Los Niños Kids Corner with piñatas and Dora the Explorer, Exotic Petting Zoo with pony rides, Inflatable Rides and information booths from several cultural organizations to acquaint the public with their programs and services.  New this year is the Kids Low Rider Bike Display on Sunday, June 24 from 2pm to 6pm.  Expect giveaways, and more!

One of the Fair’s purposes is to celebrate the common heritage of Hispanic nations particularly because of the rise of the Hispanic population in North County.  The funds raised are used to fund scholarships distributed to college-bound students and underprivileged children.

The entire St. Louis community, both Hispanic and non-Hispanic, is invited to come and share in this festive weekend celebration of fun and fiesta for the whole family.  Admission and parking are free.
