Tastes of Mexico fundraiser supports a more active Santa Maria
BY CAMILLIA LANHAM
For the last 10 years, People For Leisure and Youth, Inc. (PLAY) has invited Santa Marians to participate in the annual Tastes of Mexico fundraising fiesta.
PLAY supports innovative recreation, park services, and programs offered in the Santa Maria Valley. Mexican restaurants from all over the city are brought in to set up food booths and dish out their favorite menu items to the attending crowd.
Tickets are $30 and include as much food as you want, Mexican beer, margarita tasting, and entertainment.
Last year, the Righetti High School Marimba Band and Folklorico dancers, Los Caporales, and Mariachi Imperial headlined the event.
This year’s taste will take place on Sept. 6 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Veterans’ Memorial Community Center on West Tunnell Street in Santa Maria. Tickets are available at the Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department located at 615 S. McClelland St. or by visiting santamariaatplay.org.
