Chihuahuas! Impalas! Jalapenos! Cinco de Mayo Fiesta, Festival Plaza, Shreveport, 9 am - midnight, Sat, May 7

The Hispanic community of Shreveport-Bossier will offer a celebration of the food, music, and culture of Mexico during the 14th annual Cinco de Mayo Fiesta to be held Saturday, May 7, 9 a.m.-midnight, in downtown Shreveport’s Festival Plaza, says Chris Jay.

See live music, children’s activities, a free health fair, canine contests (noon to 1 pm), incuding the annual Chihuahua racing competition, jalapeno-eating contest (3 pm), a car show (9 am to 4 pm) with cash prizes, and a grito contest at 9:30 pm. The grito is the fearsome Mexican Scream, says Wikipedia.
