San Pablo’s Cinco de Mayo fest draws big crowd


By Zach Chouteau

The ‘Rich Life’ segment dropped by the grounds of San Pablo’s St. Paul Church on Saturday, and was quickly caught up in the spirit of Cinco de Mayo. 

The big festival there drew a huge crowd, showcased live music with a vibrant Latin flair and bustled with endless carnival games and authentically delicious fare. My Kindergarten son Logan loved some of the wacky games as well as a massive bounce house with a giant shark face serving as the entryway. Other big hits for the kiddies on hand were a gigantic inflatable Spider-Man slide and a tee-ball game featuring an ‘air-powered’ tee with a ball floating in mid-air for kids to take a swing at.

A Chevron-sponsored stage showed off some live musical acts that had people of all ages on their feet dancing, and numerous info booths provided community support to event-goers. Perhaps most popular of all were the food booths, with long lines forming for tacos, burritos and other mouthwatering Mexican munchies.

Among the on-hand sponsors supporting the event were the San Pablo Police Department, Lifelong Medical Group, the City of San Pablo and several others.
