CALEXICO — Tickets for the upcoming Mariachi Festival Sin Fronteras concert are available at the Calexico Chamber of Commerce at the corner of Highways 98 and 111.

The concert will be in Crummett Park May 18. Tickets are $25, $20 and $15.

Chamber Executive Director Hildy Carrillo-Rivera said tickets are selling fast and everyone planning to attend should call the chamber as soon as possible at 357-1166.

The concert will feature the mariachi-stylings of Mariachi Sol De Mexico, the all-female troupe Mariachi Reyna and the Imperial Valley's Los Reyes del Valle and Mariachi Mixteco.


Prospective concert goers can pick up an official T-shirt at the chamber as well. T-shirts are $15 and come in large, extra-large and double-X. The black T-shirts with a green design have the 2002 official mariachi concert logo.

Chamber member Joe Moreno of Apple Market-Super Shopping said the T-shirts are cool.

"Come buy your tickets and get one of these T-shirts," he said.

After buying a T-shirt the chamber hopes you sign up for the Mariachi Festival decorating contest. All participating businesses and homes will be judged starting at noon Monday.

Chamber members along with commissioners from the city arts and beautification commissions will be doing the judging.

All homes and businesses interested in participating should call the chamber at 357-1166.

Winners will receive tickets to the Soroptomist International Noche Mexicana Wine Tasting on Tuesday and the mariachi concert. There will be separate contests for homes and businesses.
