ROSARITO BEACH: 2nd Annual Mariachi & Folkloric Festival - Sept 28-Oct. 2

The second Annual Mariachi spectacular will feature the best of Mariachi music and dance groups from Mexico and the U.S. In addition to the chance to hear great mariachi music, the thousands expected to attend from both Mexican and the U.S. will know that their ticket purchases will go toward helping build Rosarito’s first Boys & Girls Club.

The Sept. 28 - Oct. 30 beachfront spectacular on the grounds of the Rosarito Beach Hotel will feature both mariachi and folkloric ballet competitions each day with groups from junior high through college age from both countries.

Complete package tickets are $49 and $59, which includes an oceanfront room at the hotel. Details are available at www.clubdeninosyninansderosarito.com, www.rosarito.org and clubrosarito@hotmail.com.

Tickets also can be purchased in advance at the Rosarito Beach Hotel, the Rosarito Convention & Visitors Bureau or, if still available, at the event itself. Proceeds from the Mariachi festival will go toward the construction and operation of the Rosarito Boys and Girls Club. Members of Rosarito’s large expatriate community will be helping as event volunteers and the Rosarito Beach Hotel is offering special lodging packages.

The mariachi festival has been named an official event of Mexico’s bicentennial. The state department of tourism and city are among sponsors.
