Great time held at La Fiesta del Pueblo

Many people came out to the 2012 La Fiesta del Pueblo celebration this past weekend at Fulwood Park. Eduardo Olalde, Fiesta del Pueblo board leader, said they had a great turnout compared to last year. He stated, “Our stats for last year were 5,000 people from 10 counties and four states. This year, we had 6,000 people from 33 counties and five states. We had Tahino of Young Audiences perform this year, as well as Folkloric Group of Moultrie, Danza de Apaches of Tifton and Nuestro Folklore by Angel Aguilar of Angel’s Touch Salon, who was also a great support for this year’s festival.” He added that they also had some couples perform from Motion Dance Studio in Valdosta, as well as Tift County High School Cultures United and Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College Cultura Latina Club. Olalde stated that a band led by Jose Luis Lopez of First Baptist Church in Tifton called “Grupo Gran Comision” performed, and the festival ended on a great note by Banda LBO, who performed for their street dance. Sponsors included: The Tifton-Tift County Tourism Association, Tift Regional Medical Center, Coca Cola, Olé Mexican Foods, South Georgia Banking Company, Quality Produce, LLC, City of Tifton, Tift County and Nixon Funeral Homes (James Nixon).
