Mineola May Fiesta returns


The Mineola Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring Mineola May Fiesta Day in downtown Mineola Saturday, May 7.

The event runs from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and features musician Brianna Arteaga, a top 12 contestant for La Voz Kids; a low riders truck show; a live speed painter; DJ Mazter; mariachi music; authentic food; a piñata burst with prizes; and vendors. 

“Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the community hasn’t gathered for this event in the past two years and we’re looking for good weather and lively crowds as we host our first outdoor event of 2022,” said Jessica Romine, chamber manager. “Visitors to historic downtown Mineola always enjoy the hometown hospitality and opportunity to visit the many cute shops in town.

“Over the course of the spring we’ve had some new shops open that we’re excited to introduce for our returning and first-time visitors.”
