I have planned so many times to go to the Tamale Festival in Indio and have never been able to make it.
I went to festivals.com (?) and found one that is right around the corner (East L.A.)this weekend! I don't even have to think about going on the freeway!!!!
I heard that each booth has to commit to 1,000 tamales and they expect to sell over 100,000 Tamales. To top it off, it is free with free parking too!
I'm not sure if this is okay to post, but the site if you're interested is:
