Viva La Vida sponsor and supporter, Suavecito Pomade, will be in attendance with special deals for attendees on their grooming products, merchandise and apparel. Visit the Suavecito crew at their booth for more information on exclusive offers, take pictures with the Suavecito mascot, and learn how to get a haircut on the “Hairstream”.
In addition to viewing beautifully created altars, attendees will be able to buy local artwork from vendors while being entertained by cultural performances and live music. As our cultural awareness continues to grow through art and traditions; Viva La Vida takes us to a time when friends, family, and communities came together to celebrate life with all of our senses.
Viva La Vida is a free, family friendly festival. Participants in past events have dedicated altars to their parents, siblings, and friends as well as present causes such as soldiers who have died in war, women who have made an impact in history, and people who have died of illnesses such as AIDS, cancer, or diabetes.
