Celebrate with Barrio Centro


“This is the Flowers & Bullets Barrio Centro Celebration!!!
The purpose of the fiesta is to once a year host a fall gathering for our neighbors and friends where they can meet and enjoy each others company in a informal relaxed family friendly environment. The fiesta includes kid games, food, music, small car show, and information tables to educate our community.
Last year we had great turn-out with about 75-100 people in attendence in & out all day. The fiesta is free and open to the public, specifically the Barrio Centro communities.
We feel community gatherings like this are a nessesity in neighborhoods like Barrio Centro to ensure family involvement and community development.”
And if you don’t know where Barrio Centro is, here’s the Ward 5 map:
