Comida act in Aurora — Latin specialities shine at two festivals


AURORA | It was a day with mild weather and wild Latin delicacies in Aurora on Saturday.

Music, craft beer and a bevy of all kinds of tamales took center stage at a first-ever Talmale Festival at the Town Center of Aurora mall.

Tamale Festival by Fitzsimons Credit Union had activities for every age. There were bounce houses, a catalogue of craft beers and plenty of tamales.

The famous masa rolls were the main attraction but the festival also offered strolling mariachi musicians, a live band, and folklorico dancers.

Farther north, The Stanley Marketplace was host to a Pupusa Festival. The El Salvadoran specialty, similar to Venezuelan arepas, drew long lines for the event.
