This weekend’s festival will have a parade, three stages of musical and dance performances, chihuahua races, a taco-eating contest, a lowrider car show, food and drink, kids’ activities, artisans and crafters.

The annual Cinco de Mayo Community Parade begins at 11 a.m. Saturday at Denver’s City and County Building.
