Frida Fest will be held in downtown Aurora on Sunday, July 10 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The new event welcomes friends and families to spend the afternoon enjoying artwork, presentations, karaoke, and more. Located on Water Street Mall, there will be activities for all ages.

Check out special performances by Diego Trillo, La China del Bajio, Nancy Lopez, Sherlyn Padilla, Ballet Yetlanezi, Mitotiliztli, and Ballet Folklorico Yunuen.

Tacos, churros and ice cream will be available from local food vendors, La Michoacana Elit, Primos Tacos, and Juquilita Tacos during the event.
