The 2023 Discover Downtown Series kicks off with a Cinco de Mayo Celebration on May 6! The fiesta will feature mariachis, margaritas and more in the heart of Prosper from noon to 4 p.m. Eventgoers are invited to sip, nosh and stroll along Broadway St. to the colorful sights and sounds of Cinco de Mayo with traditional music and an array of food trucks. The Kids Zone is the place to be at 2 p.m. for fun with pinatas. Then put on your culinary sombrero for the guacamole-making contest at 2:30 p.m. The event is free of charge, with beverages for sale.
Parking will be available at Town Hall, 250 W. First St., in Prosper. Plan to enter the parking area from Main Street and park on the north side of the building. Broadway Street will be closed between Crockett St. and Main St. throughout the event.
“The Town is excited for our first-ever Cinco de Mayo celebration!” said Dan Baker, Director of Parks and Recreation. “We look forward to filling Broadway up with event goers and the sights and sounds for this event.”
“Vamos a la fiesta!” remarked Mary Ann Moon, Executive Director of the PED. “Prosper Parks & Rec is bringing a Latin flair to Downtown. Come join the fun May 6 as we celebrate Cinco de Mayo. The Mexican culture is one of beauty, family, unique music and cuisine. The PEDC is proud to partner with our Town in bringing a taste of Mexico to Broadway and Main,” she added.
