Fiesta de La Feria – Saturday, February 26, 2011

Join us for the Fiesta de La Feria on February 26, 2011 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. in downtown La Feria and enjoy all the fun!

The “Fiesta de La Feria” is a family oriented gathering with a goal of providing an opportunity for everyone to have a day full of fun and excitement.  The Fiesta is held with the intent of bringing the people of the area and visitors together in the spirit of harmony, celebration, and goodwill.

This event is held on Main Street just south of Business Highway 83.  A variety of live bands (download poster with music lineup here:  Fiesta Music Poster2011), plenty of food, arts & crafts, and family oriented games will be featured at the Fiesta.  Carnival rides and games from Kenny’s Funland will be available as a new added feature for this year’s Fiesta.

There are various dance contests held in the afternoon at the main stage, as well as a Grito contest.  Each pays a $50.00 prize to the winner.

Part of the Fiesta fun is the annual Pie Bake-Off which is in its fourth year of competition.  In addition, this year we have added a Cup Cake Contest.  The top prize in each pays $35.00 and ribbons are awarded to the first, second, and third place winners.

The car show continues to grow in number every year, and the first 50 cars to enter will receive a Fiesta Car Show T-shirt.

Other activities going on during the day, are the art and photography contest which entries can be viewed at the Cultural Arts Center, 122 E. Oleander Ave. on the east side of Main Street.  Also at the Cultural Arts Center see performances from the La Feria High School Ballet Folklorico, Dominguez Elementary students performing the “La Feria’s Got Talent Show,” La Cosa Nostra Youth Group, and Carlos R. Canas (best of the oldies).  At 1:00 p.m enjoy the special appearance by Oscar Munoz performing his Magic, also at the Cultural Arts Center.
