It runs through Sunday. The actual site is: http://www.cincodemayo.org

I had something like 8 tacos, a gordita, a huarache, and a churro. Here are my food recs:

* Salvador's, in the main stage tent, has some great looking strawberries with cream and panes dulces, including churros.

* Flor de Michoacan, also in the tent, hand makes their gorditas. I recommend the carnitas.

* Richi's makes some nice huaraches, which they lightly fry, before piling with frijoles and whatever meat you choose. (The carne asada was decent.)

* There are both birria (made with goat) and cabeza available at Tacos las Conchas.

* La Fogata spit roasts their al pastor, like it should be, and grills it with onions.

* The most interesting choices came from, of all places, a stand called "Mister Tacos". They had both cochinita pibil and stewed chicharron. They also had a mole and a very nice salsa bar.

* Mexico Lindo has giant, Mexico City style huaraches and makes all their masa antojitos by hand.

* Ay Caramba had the best al pastor which even had the pineapple on the top of the spit.

Also, definitely see the folklorico. You won't see much better in Mexico, if at all, and it'll be a lot more expensive. They have it a couple times a day.
