A successful and colorful Sunnyside weekend of Cinco de Mayo pageantry is in the books.

The 31st annual three-day event provided the beauty of the caballeros with their dancing charro horses in one of the city’s largest community parades, plus thrilling rides at the carnival.

Thousands of people filled the downtown streets throughout the weekend, listening to local and international bands playing mariachi, Banda, Tex-Mex and country music.

They visited the many vendors, who offered a variety of food from elotes to spicy carne asada. Churros and donuts, as well as fruit cups provided sweet treats.

There were dozens of brave food eating contestants and, of course, the crowning of a new Miss Cinco de Mayo on Saturday afternoon.
