Fiesta Atlanta is proud to announce that 50% of the waste volume from last year’s Cinco de Mayo celebration was diverted by recycling, according to Lanza Group, LLC producers of Fiesta Atlanta and their waste disposal team at Atlanta-based Southeast Site Services.
Ralph E. Herrera, President of Lanza Group, LLC commented, “Our goal for last year’s Fiesta Atlanta was accomplished and we are very proud to announce this achievement on the 42nd Anniversary of Earth Day. The upcoming 6th annual Fiesta Atlanta – Cinco de Mayo Celebration will take place two (2) weeks following Earth Day on Sunday, May 6th and we will continue to expand our environmental efforts by encouraging attendees to recycle and continue to educate them on the importance of acting green.”
As part as Fiesta Atlanta’s environmental strategies attendees are encouraged to recycle their waste at recycling bins placed throughout Centennial Olympic Park. Sponsors and partners are also encouraged to use the recycling boxes and bins.
Fiesta Atlanta is a free, daylong festival that features live Latin music on two stages with international, national and local recording artists. The family stage includes lively, colorful acts like Mexican folkloric dancers, clowns, musicians and storytellers. Artists will sell handmade traditional crafts and delicious Latin foods. The festival’s partners will provide samples of their products and interactive displays.
Centennial Olympic Park has been the site of Fiesta Atlanta since its inauguration in 2007; attendance has grown steadily year by year. Fiesta Atlanta has evolved from a predominately Hispanic event to include the entire Atlanta community with more crossover artists, international arts and crafts and a fun filled atmosphere for people of all ages to enjoy.
