Macy’s Court (4 vendors)
Food Court (4 vendors)

Art Exhibits: Emigdio Vasquez Tribute Rosemary Vasquez (also daughter of Emigdio Vasquez and wonderful visual artist.) I think that there is no better way to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month than by Honoring Emigdio Vasques and having his successors as our guest artists.
This Chicano movement of art is more than relevant to Santa Ana as a city and community. I was a part of the event planning committee that hosted the Celebration of Emigdio’s life in 2013 when he was awarded the Maestro Award https://www.ocregister.com/2013/06/14/chicano-artist-to-receive-maestro-award-saturday/
