$7.50 for Admission to Cinco De Mayo Downtown Fiesta 2013 presented by The Arena District (Up to $15 Value)
The Cinco de Mayo Downtown Fiesta 2013 takes over the lot at Ionia St. for a day of dancing, DJs, and drinks. Houston-based reggaeton group Maximo y Mo Millones take the stage with their crowd-exciting tunes, along with a cavalcade of local mix-makers. Between trips to the food and drink vendors, attendees can vie for piñata prizes or sign up for the wing-eating contest. The festival runs on Saturday, May 4, from noon to 10 p.m.
The non-profit Arena District's goal is simple, yet great: to promote the cultural growth of Grand Rapids and ensure a thriving downtown community. They encourage restaurants, entertainment, and culture to expand, and champion common interests for all downtown businesses. To this end, the Arena District curates fun-filled events throughout the year, including everything from art shows and culture-club meetings to talent competitions. They also maintain a directory of centrally located bars and eateries and even have a map highlighting nightlife and available parking.
