The event, held a t the Texas County Activity Center, will open at 1 p.m. with Mariachi Santa Cecilia from Amarillo, Texas.

Guymon’s ever popular Alma Folklorica de Oklahoma dancers will perform several times throughout the event.

Parents are encouraged to bring a camera for photos with their favorite characters. A freestyle karate group from Liberal, Kan., will also perform.

Delicious food vendors with a wide variety of traditional Hispanic dishes sure to please a number of palettes will be at the event, as well. Most of the vendors are non-profit groups, including local churches, which are raising money for various church events and local youth groups.

Local government officials will have a presentation around 7 p.m. celebrating the unity of local cultures, with a possible appearance by Republican Gubernatorial candidate Mary Fallin. The campaign has sought out the event coordinator, but no confirmation was made as of press time.
