Santa Ana’s Fiestas Patrias draws a huge crowd to Calle Cuatro

I stopped by the Fiestas Patrias event in downtown Santa Ana today. Boy was it crowded!  Everyone was having a great time.

The exhibits are set up all along Fourth Street, or Calle Cuatro.  Vendors included a dizzying array of major corporations, such as Wells Fargo, Albertsons and State Farm Insurance, and smaller vendors selling toys, jewelry, hats and clothing.  And there were a ton of food vendors too.

The Fiestas Patrias parade is scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday, Sep. 19, at 4 pm.

Disneyland is getting involved this year too, for the very first time. Mickey and Minnie Mouse will be serving as Children’s Grand Marshals.
