    Sure there is always the great second rate bands like, Switchfoot and Lifehouse and the always-a-hit with mi tio has-beens like Donna Summers and my fair favorite KC and the Sunshine Band; Pero don’t forget que tambien hay musica Latina. I’m talking heart-thumping banda pal padrino and latin pop pa tu primita, hola prima.

Julio Iglesis plays Friday june 25th y Luis Fonsi closes out the fair on Cinco de Julio.  Most conciertos are free with paid admission, con la opcion de upgraded seats.
