Lucha Libre Added to Downtown El Paso Fiesta de las Luces
Mariachis, vendors, food trucks, and now you can add masked wrestlers to the lineup of the next Fiesta de las Luces.
It wouldn't be a block party that celebrated local culture without luchadores, given how big a part Mexican wrestling and wrestlers are in our border culture.
"Lu-cha! Lu-cha! Lu-cha!"
The heroes and villains of Lucha Frontera will rumble and tumble inside the ring and under the lights for the first time ever at Fiesta de las Luces.
Among the eight "thunderous battles" of lucha libre scheduled for the evening are Black Widow going up against Perrush K El Exotico, Aereo vs Feroz, and Akantus taking on Ráfaga Jr.
