Riverside Tamale Festival returns Saturday

Tamale fans will want to head to Riverside’s White Park in Riverside on Saturday (April 22).

That’s where the fifth annual Riverside Tamale Festival is set for 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The family friendly event will feature singers, bands, folklorico dancers and, of course, lots of tamales.

Tickets are $10 for those 12 and older, and can be purchased at the door or in advance online (a $1.49 service fee applies).

Proceeds will benefit the Spanish Town Heritage Foundation, an organization that seeks to restore the Trujillo Adobe and establish a Spanish Town historical and cultural district.

White Park is at 3885 Market St. in downtown Riverside.
