Mineola celebrates May Fiesta


The May Fiesta, sponsored by the Mineola Area Chamber of Commerce, filled downtown Mineola Saturday with colorful sights and sounds from mariachi bands to revving engines.

Among the events were two performances by Mineola’s own folklorico dancers, with music by Mariachi Real de Dallas and a Selena tribute by Luzy Tinajero. Children got to try their luck at pinata bashing while those brave enough took on the pepper-eating contest. A car show also graced much of N. Johnson St. 

Food vendors and non-profit organizations also set up booths
