“The free event celebrates Latin culture and music and features live music, food and drink booths, accordion competition, Salsa competition, Jalapeno eating contest (Yikes!) and the world famous Grito competition!

The Grito competition is a very loud yell or call which is an expression of joy or excitement that has become one of the internationally known behaviors of Mexican culture made famous during the Mexican War of Independence from Spain. Ear plugs are not furnished. Ha! What fun! This competition is open to men and women alike. It’s always amazing to hear the different and wide varieties of yells. Aye, aye, ayeeee!” ~ TSE Entertainment
