Cinco de Mayo celebration to add to festivities Sunday in Ansonia
ANSONIA - Sunday promises to be a festive day downtown.
Not only will the day commemorate the inventor of the bicycle, Ansonia resident Pierre Lallement, with a bicycle festival but it also will feature a Cinco de Mayo celebration.
The second annual fiesta starts at noon. It will be hosted by Libby Meissner, owner of Crave, a Caribbean fusion restaurant at 102 Main St.
The event will be held in the Doyle Senior Center parking lot adjacent to the restaurant.
Crave is located inside the historic Ansonia Opera House.
“We’ll have live music from The Ascensions and another band to be announced,” Meissner said.
Illusionist Chris Lengyul will perform from noon to 1:30 p.m. and again from 8 to 10 p.m., she said.
The menu will feature Mexican fare, including chicken and beef fajitas and tacos, carne asada, chiles rellenos, as well as margaritas and Model Especial on draft.
“We’ll have giveaways, T-shirts, gift cards (to Crave and Only for Her boutique) and more,” Meissner said.
The party ends at 10 p.m.
