By Matt Ward— The first annual “Viva Texicana” Hill Country Fiesta, celebrating Hispanic heritage in the Texas Hill Country, will be held Saturday, Sept. 28, from 4-9 p.m. at Pioneer Museum, located at 325 West Main Street.

The event will be an evening of family-friendly fun hosted by Stephanie Urbina Jones, a third generation Hispanic-American country singer-songwriter and featured artist on the TV show “Troubadour Texas.”

Festivities will kick off at 4 p.m. with an hour-long performance by Mariachi Nuevo Estilo ADM, recent “America’s Got Talent” performers whose style mixes traditional Mexican music with some of today’s top hits.

A special “Fiesta Fun Zone” with free children’s activities will take place from 4-6 p.m. featuring educational and cultural arts, crafts and games, including piñatas, mariachi musical chairs, a tortilla toss, fiesta rubber ducks, storytelling in English and Spanish and more.

From 5:15-6 p.m., the “Freedom Beat”, a group of at-risk youth from Uvalde, will take the “Viva Texicana” stage, showcasing their use of trash cans and other non-traditional items to create music.

Festivities will continue at 6 p.m. with the crowning of the Grito! King and Queen and the Arriba! Salsa jalapeño eating contest, followed by a Mariachi band and Mexican Folklorico dancers at 6:30 p.m.

At 7:30 p.m., “Viva Texicana” Hill Country Fiesta host Stephanie Urbina Jones, will take the stage for the “Viva Texicana” Hill Country Fiesta Grand Finale.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for children.
