A celebration of Mexican culture is happening soon in the city.
The 50th Fiesta Mexicana will take place Sept. 13-15 at Calder Plaza.
The festival will feature music, food, artists, piñatas, a giant cake, clowns, children’s activities and more.
It is hosted by the Mexican Heritage Association.
Fiesta Mexicana began in Grand Rapids in 1969 after a group of Mexican women decided to share their cultural heritage with the community.
