Lowriders, Live Music Highlight Lincoln Park Day
You are cordially invited to a Quinceanera this weekend. And while the festivities include food and music this one is more a laid-back grill out and chill out than an extravagant affair.
This Quince is in honor of Lincoln Park Day's 15th birthday. The annual celebration of El Paso's "Mexican American culture" will take place on Sunday, September 22 at Lincoln Park, a.k.a. Chicano Park.
Playing off the Quinceanera theme, event organizers asking all young ladies who have recently celebrated theirs to wear their dress -- Damas and Chambelanes optional.
A Lowrider car show and a new mural honoring Mexican painter Frida Khalo will highlight this year's festivities, according to the Lincoln Park Conservation Committee Facebook.
Other entertainment includes Matachines, live bands, a car show hosted by Latin Pride car club, and a "Lowrider" magazine Meat Up featuring the Lowrider Rig on display, per the event flyer.
Lincoln Park Day is Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is free to attend. Food and drinks will be sold, but if you want to picnic in the park, or grill out everyone involved is more than cool with that.

How to Get to Lincoln Park
Lincoln Park is the grassy area under the Spaghetti Bowl that you've no doubt passed countless times on your way to and from downtown with all those colorful murals painted on the freeway columns.
