Waukesha, WI – On Sunday, the Sunny and warm weather drew hundreds to the Fiesta Waukesha 2015 for its final day. Waukesha Mayor Shawn Reilly volunteered to BBQ his famous chicken and ribs at the three day Fiesta and Anselmo Villareal, President and CEO of La Casa de Esperanza helped to serve food at the event. Proceeds raised from Mayor Reilly’s famous BBQ cook out will benefit the charter school at Casa de Esperanza.
A variety of musical (JT El Inconfundible and Banda Luna Blanca performed on Sunday) and dancing performing groups were featured, including carnival rides for the children and a market place.
Fiesta Waukesha’s mission is to promote multicultural awareness through a three-day music and cultural festival held in Frame Park on the banks of the Fox River in Waukesha. The festival is free to the public and offers a wide variety of Hispanic entertainment, according to its website.
The annual festival ends on Sunday.
