ADMISSION FOR THE EVENT IS FREE FOR KIDS 10 AND UNDER.

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.
¡VIVA! FORT WAYNE FIESTA!! will be hosted at the beautiful HEADWATERS PARK EAST PAVILLION in downtown Fort Wayne.
It’s time for a great day of fun, Chihuahua races, games, Latin-American food, dancers, live music and information-sharing!!!
All proceeds (100%) from ¡VIVA! FORT WAYNE FIESTA!! will go to the Jorge Gonzalez Trust. Jorge is a 17-year old boy in desperate need of a kidney transplant. As of today over $80,000.00 has been raised to help Jorge obtain his much needed kidney transplant. The goal is to have $100,000.00 in the Trust account for the surgery to take place.
