“This is an amazing opportunity for the City of Pasco to showcase the upgrades to the Farmers Market. We have 5 separate days celebrating the rich history of our Mexican culture in the city. Events start Sunday with the crowning of the Cinco de Mayo Queen. Then we have a full lineup of events starting Wednesday. The parade is Saturday morning. Our headliner band Saturday is the popular group La Mafia. There’s so much excitement surrounding the event and we can’t wait for people to come out and support our great city. Because of COVID, we haven’t been able to hold this for 2 years. We expect this to be our largest ever event,” said Mike Gonzalez, economic development manager at the City of Pasco.
