On Saturday May 5th, more than 200 foster children and their foster families celebrated Cinco de Mayo with a Fiesta in Laredo. The Laredo office of LSS Foster In Texas, Lamar Bruni Vergara Trust, Foster Angels of South Texas, and TDFPS hosted this fun event, which all happened on Laredo’s Main Street across from the Holy Redeemer Church.
From 10am to 4pm, fiesta-goers enjoyed food, refreshments, paletas (popsicles), face painting, fishing for prizes, musical chairs, raffles, plus games and more games. Visiting foster families also had the opportunity to get bilingual information on Foster In Texas program and other similar programs.
A large white canvas canopy was decorated with piñatas, zarapes and other festive Mexican decorations set the festival mood. The smiles on the faces of our 106 foster children and their families said it all!
