Cinco De Mayo held with beautiful weather
It was the right kind of day for an outdoor festival. Many Otero county residents and others enjoyed the day in Rocky Ford at the fairgrounds at the Cinco De Mayo event. There were vendors with food and merchandise, bounce houses for the kids, a beer garten and cornhole tournament and music. A jalapeno eating contest and pie eating contest was a hit. Josh DeLeon was the winner who downed the most jalapenos in one minute, and 12-year-old Jacob Baca was the victor in the one minute pie eating contest. He wore most of the pie home on his face. We hope you enjoy the photos we took, posted below.
