Sacramento Tamale Festival

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Tamales of many flavors were featured at today’s 7th annual Sacramento Tamale Festival.   The festival, sponsored by KSFM, filled downtown’s Cesar Chavez Park with tamales, burritos, sno-cones and a variety of entertainment.  Aztec dancers, music, piñatas for the kids and a scheduled performance by the singer Royalty added to the festival’s offerings.

First-time festival patron Terri Ortega heard about the event several years ago when her cousin won first place in the tamale-making contest.  Terri decided to come to the festival today to “see what it was all about”.   Carrying several bags of purchased goodies, she noted that it is “beautiful here and everyone is enjoying themselves”.
