First Friday PK: Cinco de Mayo

May 3, 2019 | Main Street

On Friday, May 3, from 5-8:30 p.m., First Friday Poughkeepsie is proud to kick off 2019 with a Cinco De Mayo celebration on Main Street between Academy and Hamilton right in the heart of Downtown Poughkeepsie. And as always, attendance is FREE, and so is parking, available at city-owned lots at Crannell Street and Academy Street, both just around the corner.

Along with the most delicious Hispanic food and drink, you’ll enjoy performances by Mariachi Viva Mexico, Grupo Folclorico Mixtonalli and Queen City Dance, and live music provided by La Super Latina FM and First Friday Poughkeepsie’s very own DJ Smitty.

Check out our featured nonprofit for the month ABC Latino, a lifestyle, health and marketing media resource for the Hispanic community based right here in the City of Poughkeepsie. ABC Latino will be on-hand to discuss all the services and products they offer, right from their doorstep at 356 Main Street. A portion of the proceeds from this event’s fundraising will benefit ABC Latino and its community programs.

And new for 2019, join us at our featured After-Party Sponsor venue 40 Cannon! The fun doesn’t have to stop when the sun goes down, so head just one block South for good times at 40 Cannon Street, which features a new art gallery, brewery, wine bar and cafe.
