Lowriders, Frontera Bugalú Highlight Lincoln Park Day
A Lowrider car show, live music, and Chicano art will be the centerpiece of Lincoln Park Day this weekend at the Central El Paso park.
A concert by local band Frontera Bugalú, known for it's unique take on cumbias and writing songs with social commentary, will highlight the annual celebration of El Paso's "Mexican American culture"
Other entertainment planned for this Sunday includes Folkloric dancers, Matachines, and a "Pachucos Zoot Suit Boogie." Art exhibits, a mural presentation, and a Lowrider car show hosted by Latin Pride car club lead the list of activities, according to the event flyer posted on the Lincoln Park Facebook page.
Lincoln Park, a.k.a. Chicano Park, is the grassy area under the Spaghetti Bowl with all those colorful murals painted on the columns holding up the freeway interchange that you've no doubt passed countless times on your way to and from downtown.
The event, which goes down Sunday, September 24, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., is free to attend. Food and drinks will be sold, but if you want to picnic in the park, or bring your own grill organizers are more than cool with that.
