Vecinos de South Pasadena’s mission is to bring together Latinos and non-Latinos alike while sharing the richness of Latino culture. This mission will be in full display this Fourth of July as they host a Mexican food booth at Garfield Park.

Vecinos will once again be offering lunch plates with taquitos and tamales (chicken and green chili and cheese) served with rice and beans for only $7. They’ll also have a traditional Latino beverage, Jamaica, a sweetened hibiscus tea for only $1.

“Sharing Latino hospitality is a key component of sharing Latino culture,” said Janna Philpot, current president of Vecinos, “our food booth is always popular with the crowd because we share delicious food at a reasonable price,” she continued.   

In keeping with their mission, Vecinos will offer their guests use of Mexican blankets to picnic on while enjoying their lunch.

Vecinos has partnered with small, local, restaurants like Yuca’s in Pasadena (Fair Oaks and Glenarm) and Pocha’s in Highland Park (6101 York, one block past Figueroa) which makes this food booth possible!
