Cinco de Mayo Baile a huge hit

The Cinco de Mayo Baile was great.

We had a crowd of about 175 people, with a fabulous band and fun for everyone. Perfeccion de Chimayo kept the crowd dancing until midnight when they ended the night with Bob Seger’s “Old Time Rock and Roll.”

While the adults enjoyed the cash bar and food from Flying Burrito as they danced the night away, the kids jumped the night away in the bounce house with their “painted masks” on.

“I believe it was the right balance of adult and kid entertainment. This was a great event with a great turnout,” said Ron Gustafson.

What a festive good time for everyone. We are looking forward to more great festivities at the community center. With our new curtains and sound system, all events are sure to be a big hit.
