Baylor University's annual Fiesta, a celebration of the Mexican-American and Latino influences in the Baylor community, will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, March 31, at Traditions Plaza at Fifth Street and Fountain Mall on the Baylor campus.

The event, which is free and open to the public, is presented by the Hispanic Student Association and the Baylor Activities Council, the traditions programs leadership team for the Baylor department of student activities.

"Fiesta is an important event for Baylor because it allows Baylor students and staff to learn more about the Hispanic culture in a fun and relaxing atmosphere, while also providing a means for students at Baylor to celebrate their cultural traditions and diversity," said Michelle Caunitz, executive resource coordinator of the Baylor Activities Council.

The event will feature performers including: Dallas Aztec Dancers Cualli Tepectl, Ballet Folklorico Celestial, Spanish Fly and Mariachi Azteca. There also will be games with prizes, inflatables, dance lessons from the Baylor Latin Dance Society and free food.
