Our first year to celebrate Fiesta, we celebrated at the Fiesta de los Reyes at Market Square. This is one of the largest free Fiesta celebrations that includes a variety of live entertainment and music and over 30 food booths.
I think what we love the most about Fiesta de los Reyes is the cultural that is all brought together in one place. The bright colors, the smell of fresh food, especially the Mexican food that is being cooked right in front of your eyes, including fresh tortillas.
During our time at the Fiesta de los Reyes we take the time, as we do with all of our visits at Market Square, and grab a sweet from Mi Tierra Restaurant and Bakery.
Fiesta de los Reyes has live entertainment, from dancing to music. What is great is that all types of entertainment is happening at once so you have a choice as to which type you want to be entertained by. There is a stage inside of the Market that might have a team of dancers or a young girl singing her favorite Selena songs or you can go to either end of the Market and see what other types of entertainment is going on. You may even spot 'Mexican' Elvis standing like a statue, taking pictures with fans, or dancing.
This Fiesta event is open from 10am to 1am. We have only gone during daylight hours because we have kids, but I am sure that after the sun goes down the party really gets started. So grab your brightest outfit, toss on your flower hat or your fanciest Fiesta hat, and 'Show Us Your Shoes'.
