Fiesta Mexicana 2015 was a success thanks to the community response, parents who have support their children, the students who work hard to perfect their spots and dancing moves on stage and the families that come out and enjoy the food, ambiance and the entertainment. Thank you Gary Feinstein from Hanford Sentinel who took professional pictures, Eddie Islas from wiiiphotography, Mrs. Ximenez, Victor Maribojoc Video production, Ramon Betancourt for drink service and Napoles staff for the excellent food (with need of service improvement). Also Thanks to Dr. Raj Reddy, Mr and Mrs Gomez from Gomez Bookkeeping, Eddie Brieno from Brieno Bail Bonds who have donated every single year with hundreds of dollars to keep our culture alive and well.

Now, we are working to make Dia de los Muertos happen on Sunday November 1, 2015. The event requires community participation and it will be held in front of Kings Cultural Center FREE OF CHARGE. We want to have this event annually. We will have multiple food vendors, face painting, aguas frescas, among other things (if you have an idea, i am open for suggestions). Come and join the procession from the cemetery half a mile walk with aztec dancers leading the way, see the 15 feet altar with pictures of those individuals who have passed away and also enjoy the entertainment.

Kings Cultural Center

The Kings Cultural Center is under Kings Regional Traditional Folk Arts which is a public not for profit organization founded to expand the artistic opportunities for the youth of Kings County and surrounding communities. The purpose of the organization is to promote artistic programs (Mariachi music, Folklorico dance, Hip Hop, Salsa Dancing, Painting, and Video documentary) for youth residents in Kings County, instill cultural pride and to broaden an understanding of our heritage. The groupís primary activity is the creation, preservation and promotion of traditional ethnic events, presenting an average of 22 community performances annually including Spring and Fall Recitals.

Kings Cultural Center was opened to promote family oriented activities with cultural pride in our communities through the medium of music, dance and the arts. The organization participates in events not involving smoking or drug and alcohol activities. The families involved are multi-cultural and from different economic backgrounds. Families are from rural settings such as Kettleman City, Corcoran, Tulare, Lemoore, Armona and Hanford. The hope is to instill in children an appreciation of cultural activity in Kings County.
