Racine, WI - On Wednesday, Guadalupe "Wally" Rendon, Director of the Racine Fiesta Mexicana announced in the Racine Fiesta Facebook account that the group is planning to hold the event by mid August after suspending the festival last year. The Fiesta Mexicana festival incurred a debt on 2011 and the organizers, Hispanic Business and Professional Association, Inc. (HBPA) Board of Directors decided to suspend the festival in 2012.
Rendon states, that the group will most likely confirm a date over the Memorial Day weekend.
Fiesta Racine draws more than 6000 people to its 3-day fest held in August of each year. Funds generated from the fest are returned back to the community in forms of educational scholarships, food baskets, cultural events, according to Rendon.
