Festival Primavera 2018

This past Memorial Day Weekend, the City of Maywood had the honor to host the annual Festival Primavera. Every year, the City of Maywood closes down a section of Slauson Ave for the family fair. The fair lasted four days, from May 25 through May 28.

We had many attractions this year. The new Ferris wheel stood out and overlooked the whole city. The fair also included the Zipper which spun you and took you up into the air. There were other rides for children including the Carousel and the Swing Ride. Local vendors had booths set up with delicious variety food and merchandise. There were different types of food from many cultures, ranging from Mexican to even Hawaiian. Other booths had activities from the wheel of fortune to dance offs.

We had appearances from Los Morros Del Norte and Dueto Voces Del Rancho. Singer, Actor and Model, Ninel Conde performed on the main stage. She started off her Sunday night performance with Selena’s “Como La Flor.”

The weekend was filled with many memorable and joyful moments in which we will all keep in our hearts for years to come.
