¡Fiesta Time! Walking Through the St. Louis Hispanic Festival

While on the way Soulard Farmer’s Market, my friends and I stumbled upon the Greater St. Louis Hispanic Festival. It was a pleasant surprise, as I had no idea that it was going on this weekend, let alone right next to the farmer’s market. However, I’m not going to complain when there’s good/authentic Hispanic food available right next to me!

Beautiful paper flowers decorated the premises.

More booths. It seems like all I did this month was explore artist & food booths…

So much color!

Aren’t these adorable?! I’d totally dress up my future kids in these things.

The cutest little thing ever! Also, I promise I don’t go around taking rando pics of children (often)…it’s all done in the name of “street photography!”

Y’all. Fruit Loop popcorn. How did I not know that this existed before??

We first scavenged for food before actually looking at all the goods that were around us. I ended up getting a chicken/beef burrito that I was oh-so-thankfully able to taste since I was still getting over a cold that blocked my sense of taste and smell for the past few days.

Then these two got a winning picture as Juan & Carlita:

Yes, I totally made up “Juan & Carlita.” But it’s kind of fitting for Ethan and Sarah, don’t you think?

After exploring the actual Soulard farmer’s market (separate post coming up!) for a while, we wandered back out through the Hispanic festival again.

Back away from the pastries, Ethan.

I saw these mini guitars and woven bags everywhere when I was in Mexico for spring break. So nostalgic.

Let’s end with a dream, shall we?

What cultures are around you in your city? Have you been to a cultural celebration before?

Thanks for reading!
