Second Day of Festival de Vida

When I left at 2 PM today we were up to 30-something newly registered voters!

And remember that big name bands & singers are at night, too late for this old man! 🙂

A food truck showed up today! (Maybe from San Jose)

The two most popular foods at these gatherings are Ceviche (raw seafood soup that I don’t eat!)
 and Granizados (Snow Cones)

And next most popular is grilled chicken on a stick with a tortilla of course!
Or sometimes it is grilled pork.
