There were two fun-filled weekends full of musical, cultural, and artistic exhibits, vendors, and concerts. The spotlight for this year's festival was on Mexico. There were different state celebrations held on specific dates. On the first day of the event, Mexico celebrated their state's culture, music, and food. On April 27, Tamaulipas had their celebration. The following weekend on Saturday May 3, Veracruz enjoyed the attention, and on May 4, the focus was on the state of Puebla. There were ten separate stages, each with a full line up of bands playing every hour. Local and national acts, performed such as The Iguanas, The Blind Boys of Alabama, and Grady Gaines and the Texas Upsetters performed for the croud. During the celebration's weekdays, there were free concerts at City Hall from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. "I really liked the free concerts, considering I'm broke college student. I had so much fun at the festival and I was able to take in some of what the Mexican culture was all about," said history major Dan Broughton. There were zone designations, and maps given out at the entrances of the celebration. This gave the attendees an opportunity to visit the zone of their choice. In addition to the Zone of Mexico, there was an American Zone, an African/Caribbean Zone, a Kids Zone, a Latin Zone, an International Zone, and a Texas Zone. "I really liked the fact that the festival was divided up. Organzation is always an attraction to me," said history instructor Bob Buzzonco. -Dixie Ann Dalton Ballet Folklorico "Quetzalli de Veracruz" perform on the reliant stage I between beautiful Mexican artwork.
