Special Guests on Saturday will include the Honorable Ricardo Pineda Albarrán – the Official Mexican Consul in Tucson.

The Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce hosts the two-day celebration and president Lea Márquez Peterson will also be recognized on Saturday representing the membership.

Mariachi Alegre will perform from 12:30-2:30 p.m. each day.

On Sunday, the Rillito Park Foundation honors former Pima County Supervisor Ray Carroll with a featured race named for him. Carroll was instrumental in securing the four-year lease extension by the Board of Supervisors approved on Jan. 17, and he has been a supporter of the multi-use plan for Rillito Park.
