Mexican Festival De Pueblo a Pueblo Kicks Off Friday in Philadelphia

Philadelphia's Magic Gardens on South Street Hosts Kick-Off 

This Friday, April 27 an eight-week citywide festival (April 27 – June 17) highlighting Mexican culture and art will kick-off at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens. De Pueblo a Pueblo (From Town to Town) will celebrate the local Mexican culture in the community by learning about traditional arts and history in fun interactive ways.

De Pueblo a Pueblo Mexican Festival will kick-off with an opening reception of Echele Ganas: A Life Left Behind, exhibit by notable photographer and documentarian Laurence Salzmann, depicting the residents of Sierra Norte de Puebla, Mexico. His photos give the people of the rural Mexican Village a voice. Echele Ganas is translated in English to "do your best"! 

Join the opening reception fiesta at Philadelphia's Magic Gardens Friday night 6pm – 9pm. Psst… I hear there will be complimentary margaritas served! Bring your camera to capture every moment with the mosaic walls as the backdrop. After the reception continue your evening with a stroll on South Street.
