Meanwhile, the 26th Annual Lowrider Festival will offer dozens of gleaming cars, live music, food and fun at Mateo Camargo Park on Sunday.
Presented by Centro Cultural Aztlan, the annual event puts the spotlight on the impressive cars and trucks, which have been pumped up, tricked out and otherwise super-customized — sometimes at huge expense. Cash, trophies and bragging rights are among the goodies car owners are competing for.
The entertainment lineup will include the Krayolas, Liza Ybarra, Network for Young Artists, Joe Jama & The Proof and Ernie Garibay & Cats Don't Sleep.
The event runs from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. General admission is $10; children younger than 12 get in free. Camargo Park is at U.S. 90 West at Callaghan Road, across from Wolff Stadium.
