NIOSA is a huge multi-cultural celebration that is staged in La Villita. Vendors set up all kinds of booths selling souvenirs, tons of various foods from Mexico, Germany, China, and more. It is fantastic and I always enjoy it. The great thing about Fiesta is that it feels like the entire city is celebrating. Everyone is happy, having a good time, and just present in the moment. It's such a reminder to just have fun and let go of worries and concerns. The whole city is happy and that is something wonderful to be a part of.
We spent Friday night at NIOSA and tonight found us on a riverboat tour of the Riverwalk and then the Flambeau parade. It was amazing with several incredible floats, marching bands, dancers, and other performers.
Fiesta officially ends tomorrow, which is a bit of a let down, but I'm already looking forward to next year!
