Rhythmo Mariachi Kids at Anaheim Mariachi Festival 2014

Grandma and I at the Anaheim Mariachi Festival 2014

On Saturday, October 11, I had the opportunity to attend the Anaheim Mariachi Festival at the Pearson Park Amphitheatre.  I wouldn’t have known about the event if it wasn’t for Oscar of Folklórico Page and his great coverage and promotion of cultural and folklorico events. (You should follow him if you haven’t already)  I invited my grandma, one of the reasons why I began my folklorico journey, to accompany me at this local event.  I really liked how the event featured young and local mariachi groups and how the folklorico group showcased different regions.  In addition to, all of the proceeds benefited Rhythmo Inc Mariachi Academy, an Anaheim based non-profit dedicated to teaching youth about the Mexican culture through mariachi music.  My grandma and I had a fantastic night out and cannot wait to attend the event next year.  To learn more about Anaheim Mariachi Festival 2014, visit www.anaheimmariachi.com.  Check out some photos from this year’s event below.
