FOX 11 Celebrates Fiesta Broadway In Style

Posted: Updated:
Los Angeles, CA -

(FOX 11 / CNS) Organizers of the 24th annual Fiesta Broadway said more than 200,000 people turned out for the seven-hour festival and police reported no arrests.

The Fiesta Broadway was a free, downtown street celebration of music and culture to kick off the start of Cinco de Mayo week, which celebrates Mexico's defeat of French forces on May 5, 1862.

Officials shut down a number of streets around City Hall for the street party, which ran from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The closed streets included Broadway from Temple to 4th Street, Spring Street from Temple to 1st Street and 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th streets between Spring and Hill.

"This was our first event at the beautiful new Grand Park across from City Hall,'' said Bill Kay, of All Access Entertainment, which put on Fiesta Broadway. The main stage for entertainment was at Grand Park, Kay said. "It gave more of a concert in the park kind of feel,'' he said.

Musical entertainment was provided by Voz de Mando, A.B. Quintanilla Grupo Adiccion and Bomboneras. Also, Don Pedro and Juan and Gustavo Rivera provided a musical tribute to the late Latin musical star Jenni Rivera.

Rivera, whose real name was Dolores Janney Rivera, died in a plane crash in Mexico last December.

Next year will be the event's 25th anniversary, Kay said. "We look forward to staying at the Grand Park,'' he said. "We had a few medical calls, but nothing of significance,'' said fire department spokesman Brian Humphrey.

"There were no arrests, nothing of major importance,'' said Sgt. D. Byeon, watch commander of the Los Angeles Police Department Central Station.

    An NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired. The police department asked its Twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others decided to not "play nice, " sharing beating photos and more.
