SAN FELIPE - SalsaFest!


San Felipe Salsa Fest, July 3
by Benjamin Eugene

It's summer and it's hot. This time of year, along the Sea of Cortez, things heat up and slow down; especially in San Felipe. The snowbirds have gone home and the rest of us look for things to keep ourselves busy. This year we are going to celebrate summer, we're going to throw ourselves a party . . . The San Felipe way; when things get hot, San Felipians make it hotter.

Spicy food, hot music, hot weather and cold cerveza are on the menu for the 1st Annual San Felipe Salsa Festival, July 3, in San Felipe, Baja California. Playa San Rafael is the place for a one-day celebration of everything salsa and summer—the food, the music and the dance. You can taste it, you can dance it and you can even take it home!


The event begins a 11 a.m. and will feature the salsa creations of the community, a horseshoe tournament, arts and crafts booths, live music, a barbeque, and lots of great food. The event is free to the public to attend. If you would like to attend, exhibit, compete in the salsa competition or the horseshoe tournament, please visit www.sanfelipesalsa.com for more information.

If you're looking for hot summer fun in San Felipe over the 4th of July holiday weekend, then there is no better and more affordable way to have a good time. This is the first annual San Felipe Salsa Festival and, in an effort to get everyone involved, we have created a variety of activities for everyone—salsa lovers and businesses alike.

Playa San Rafael is located at KM 178.3 on highway 5 north of San Felipe, behind Baja Java and Blowin' Smoke BBQ.
