Rawlings Community Center hosts Cinco de Mayo celebration

Posted: Updated:

The Cinco de Mayo celebrations kicked off a little early when the Rawlings Community Center hosted their third annual Cinco de Mayo celebration on Saturday.

They celebrated with games, a talent show and, of course, some great food - including Mexican sweet pastries.

Fernando Perez, the youth program director at the Rawlings center, said the celebration is a great way to get people together.

"It's a good way to bring the community together," Perez said, "and a way for us to kind of celebrate it, and you know, you don't have to be Latino. We welcome everybody here. It's important that we all learn to celebrate each other's culture."
