Discount tickets available this weekend for inaugural Inland Empire Salsa Festival

Inland Empire Salsa FestivalPre-sale tickets are available for the inaugural Inland Empire Salsa Festival.

The event — scheduled for 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. May 16 at White Park in Riverside — features salsa tasting and competition, a beer and wine garden, and live entertainment, including host Jordin Sparks, Baby Bash and A Lighter Shade of Brown.

If you’re interested in going, though, you might want to purchase your tickets this weekend.

You see, general admission tickets are available on the event’s website for $10 (plus $1.54 service fee). The site is also offering early bird discount tickets (through May 1) for just $8 (plus $1.43), a decent bargain. Kids 12 and under are admitted free.

However, Groupon has an even better deal for either two or four tickets: Pay just $10 for two tickets or $18 for the four-pack. The deal is set to expire at the end of the day on Tuesday (April 7).

Of course, these deals sometimes linger on after the expiration time, but why take chances?
