Greenacres Gets Ready For Salsa

It’s that time of year, when things get a little spicy in Greenacres!

Salsa fest takes place this Saturday at the Greenacres Community Park, from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

More than 12,000 people are expected to show up for live salsa music, the best of salsa dancing, and tasty ethnic foods.

Salsa Fest’s main stage will be the center of entertainment.

Three international musical artists, a battle of the bands, solo artist, as well as the local radio station Mia 92.1 will all be on hand to keep the party going.

This year’s performing artists will be be Rey Ruiz, Anthony Cruz and two time Grammy Award winner Lalo Rodriguez.

But the fun doesn’t end with the music!  If you don’t feel like showing off your dance moves, try your hand at the domino tournament.

Players will compete to see who is the area’s best domino player, as well as for a $250 cash prize.

Salsa Fest will also bring back the ever popular chihuahua race this year, where the tiny pups line up to show everyone that just because they are small, doesn’t mean they’re not fast!

And finally a salsa dance contest, salsa cooking contest, and amusement rides will round out the fun.

Admission is $10, but a family four pack is only $30.

And for those little salsa lovers under the age of 7, admission is free.
