TO CELEBRATE Â¡Â¡VIVA FORT WAYNE FIESTA!! We are inviting your business/organization to join us for a day full OF FUN, MUSIC, COMPETITION AND INFORMATION. The plan is to bring muchas (many) social service agencies, churches, and businesses to display their information, talk to people, and provide ideas and resources for families. So many times people don’t seek help because they don’t know where to go. No one should be without help when help is out there to support all citizens in Fort Wayne, especially those less fortunate folks. Help us put the information in the right hands.
Â¡Â¡VIVA FORT WAYNE FIESTA!! will be hosted at the beatiful, HEADWATERS PARK EAST PAVILLION in downtown Fort Wayne. ADMISSION FOR THE EVENT IS FREE FOR KIDS 10 AND UNDER!! Adults pay a donation of only $5.00 after 5:00 p.m.
Let’s have a great day of fun, Chihuahua race, JalapeÃ±o eating contest, games, latin-american food, dancers, live music and of course lots and lots of information-sharing!!!
