Today in the Art&Seek spotlight, we’re celebrating Cinco de Mayo –with mariachis! Artes de La Rosa and the Rose Marine Theater in Fort Worth present Mariachis in the Plaza.  Performers include Mariachi Jalisciense and Ballet Folklorico de Fort Worth. There will be live dancing,  mariachi music,  traditional Mexican food and  local artists selling their work.  And it all takes place rain or shine.

There are many Cinco de Mayo events – and other festivals – going on this weekend.  You can find a healthy list of them here.
