Today’s highlights include a poetry slam in the Citified program area and an evening concert of mariachi music, featuring the University of Texas-Pan American’s Mariachi Aztlán and Mariachi Los Camperos de Nati Cano (sorry–no images of this evening concert yet. They weren’t available at the time of this posting.)

It was a hot, hot day. And we appreciate all the folks who came out to the Festival. We trust you were rewarded by the opportunity to meet and mingle with some remarkable participants and perhaps sip a cool mango smoothie.
