Yakima's Cinco de Mayo celebrations

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA--Cinco de Mayo celebrations are wrapping up all across our region.

In Yakima, organizers estimate 10,000 people attended the two-day fiesta that closed off several blocks downtown, with vendors selling food, music and dancing, and a vintage car show.

But, it wasn't all fun and games.  One vendor told KNDO business was down from 2009's event.

"Last year we had beautiful weather and yesterday was very windy," Leticia Uriostegui said.  "Maybe [the weather] has to do with that."

For many vendors this is a warm up for the Farmer's Market, which begins next week.

Yakima hosts the largest Cinco de Mayo celebration in Washington state.  It continues until 8:00 p.m. Sunday.
