I enjoy recognizing and honoring Cinco de Mayo each year, usually by enjoying Mexican cuisine, my favorite type of food. I recently read about San Diego’s Fiesta Old Town Cinco de Mayo,

and it sounds like a wonderful way to commemorate Cinco de Mayo, should you happen to be in the San Diego area on Saturday, April 30, 10 a.m.–10 p.m., and Sunday, May 1, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.

Old Town transforms into the largest Cinco de Mayo celebration in California, now in its 39th year, spanning seven blocks with a bustling mercado and artisans, décor, dining options, craft margaritas, a cantina garden and performances. Stop into Old Town’s museums

and historical sites to learn more about California’s first settlement.

In 2022, two returns ensure the celebration will be a fiesta like no other. The crowd-favorite Lucha Libre wrestling stage will allow attendees to cheer on masked luchadores from the sidelines.

flamenco and more. Street performances and roaming mariachis enhance the mercado experience.

All proceeds from the free fiesta benefit the Historic Old Town Community Foundation.

As we pulled into the small town of Schwangau, we were greeted by two breathtaking castles, Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau. To our delight, our hotel, AMERON Neuschwanstein Alpsee Resort & Spa, was situated between the two. The best part? I had views of both castles from my room.
