MARYSVILLE — The local community’s seventh annual Cinco de Mayo Celebration will return to the Totem Middle School cafeteria and gymnasium on Friday, May 3, from 6-8:30 p.m., and all Marysville and Tulalip community members are invited to participate

The free event will include Mexican food, music, dancing and activities. The food will be prepared by the Marysville School District food service students in the School House Café program. Music and entertainment will be provided by the mariachi band Mi Pais, as well as other local groups. Several activities will be geared specifically toward children, such as playing in bouncy houses, breaking piñatas, face-painting, and exploring police and fire vehicles. New this year will be Molina Healthcare’s cat mascot, Dr. Cleo, who will be on hand to lead activities with children, and they will bring a bike to make frozen non-alcoholic drinks.

Thanks to several donors, event organizers have received enough funding to offer Cinco de Mayo as a free event again this year. Monetary donations have been received from the Marysville Rotary, the Marysville YMCA, Molina Healthcare, the Marysville Free Methodist Church and HomeStreet Bank. In-kind and volunteer support has also been instrumental in making this event happen, and has been received from the Marysville School District, Molina Healthcare, Marysville Printing, Belmark Homes, the Mi Pais mariachi band, Sea Mar Community Health Center and various student groups.

The community effort has been lead by Marjorie Serge, with support from Jim Strickland, Victor Rodriguez, Susan Stachowiak, Wendy Messarina Volosin, Anastasia Garcia, Anayelle Lopez and others.

Questions in English should be directed to Marjorie Serge, by phone at 425-350-2064 or via email at Marjorie_serge@msvl.k12.wa.us. Questions in Spanish should be directed to the school district’s information line 360-657-0250.
