Two “mercados”  offer every excuse to pop in and enjoy the spectacle,  cultural tastes,  sweet aromas, and lively music of Fiesta – El Mercado de la Guerra, downtown – El Mercado del Norte, McKenzie Park uptown. The stages welcome in local talent of all kinds with plenty of costumed color, fanfare, and music!
