Cinco de Mayo Celebration at Patterson park

By Jennifer Potter-Miller

Families filled Patterson Park to celebrate Cinco de Mayo last week, and close to 150 people enjoyed a huge potluck dinner, games and music. Friends of Patterson Park partnered with Maplewood Elementary School to host the party during Screen Free Week, and welcomed the community to the celebration.

Many thanks to the parents who brought tamales, salads, all manner of taco fixings, and Mexican cookies and pan dulce galore, and to the school’s Dual Language Parent Teacher Committee for organizing a wonderfully goofy piñata relay race, crafts and freeze dance.
