Fiesta del Sol 2013

Last week on Thursday, July 18th, we had our Fiesta del Sol VIP Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony. There were 10 students that received scholarships worth $1,500 each. At Pilsen Neighbors, we believe in education being affordable and accessible to students, therefore we assist students in accomplishing their educational goals. There were over 300 attendees and the event turned out to be great!

Since last week the office has become louder and our staff has been working weekends and coming in earlier. Volunteers are coming and going picking up schedules and of course lots of calls are coming through. The long anticipated week has arrived! Fiesta del Sol 2013 is finally here! Fiesta del Sol generates around 80% of the funds used to help Pilsen Neighbors Community Council (PNCC).

The times for the festival vary, so the schedule goes as followed:

Thursday, July 25th 5:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

Friday, July 26th 11:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m.

Saturday, July 27th 11:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m.

Sunday July 28th 11:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m.

Mega Passes are $55 until Wednesday. The mega passes provide unlimited access to all the mechanical rides. There are also daily mega passes, which only work for one day.

There will be dozens of food vendors, live entertainment, live music, informational booths and much more! House of Sol will also be there for the four days and it is something you will not want to miss. The list for the other performers and music lists for Stages A and B have their line up ready so check it out! Lastly, what’s a festival without food? Come by and enjoy amazingly delicious food from various food vendors.

There’s a lot of anxiety and excitement. Pilsen Neighbors have worked hard for this event to be a success. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our office at 312-666-2663.

Hope to see you at Fiesta del Sol this week!
