If this past weekend is any indication, spring’s about to come on in full force. And with May around the corner, Perth Amboy residents can enjoy all the sights and smells of the season at the township’s scenic waterfront. Those looking to enjoy the tastes and sounds of the season as well can look forward to the Perth Amboy Cinco de Mayo Mariachi Day By the Bay, coming up on Saturday, May 5th from 12-3pm.

Held on a temporary street plaza on New Brunswick Avenue between Jefferson and Smith Streets, the event will be an epic celebration of Mexican-American culture, bringing remarkable entertainment from professional wrestling matches featuring masked performers to Mariachi music, traditional dance performances and more. In case all the performances make you work up an appetite, the afternoon will also offer authentic Mexican cuisine, including scrumptious tacos and other finger food. Plus, local restaurants Copa de Oro, Carvajal, Taqueria el Rincon, Casa del Mariachi, Taco Loco and Esmeralda will be offering special meals in honor of the day.
