I first attended this event a few years ago and enjoyed the vibrancy and energy of it. I've been attending annually ever since.
In that time I've met Ima Moreno and his wife Sabrina Albright and their son. All who bring their passion for the culture and cuisine of Mexico to their new home in High River.
I don't think it takes much for the Mexican community to find a reason to party and what better excuse than the Independence Day for their home country. Even if Canada is now home, it's still a good reason and we all are invited to join the celebration.
The Venue was decorated for the occasion, inside and out.
Some folks put the "street" into street food.
The event was ticketed so there could be a liquor license and as usual - it was a sell-out, but when there is a will there is a way. The Venue is open air and the food truck was set up on the street so no one was prevented from enjoying the evening's entertainment.
The smashing of the piñata offers lots of laughter and treats - if you're not afraid of being trampled in the rush for the goodies!
