PHOENIX — The Latin Music Festival is set for this weekend in downtown Tolleson. The two-day event will fill the streets with live performances, including mariachi music and folk dances.

The free event will also host a fundraising cornhole tournament and a car show.

The Saturday tournament is for adults who can register on-site. Teams can have a maximum of 32 members and it will cost $40 for each team to join. It lasts from 12:45 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.

Proceeds go to Tolleson youth, according to a city flyer.

Meanwhile, the car show will last from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. People can register on-site. Vehicles will enter at 94th Avenue and Van Buren Street. Space is limited and trophies will be awarded to visitors with the most impressive cars.

Local businesses will showcase their wares at various vendor booths. A special zone just for kids will have inflatables, lawn games, free face-painting and craft booths on both days.

Restaurants and food trucks will also be available to feed music lovers in the area.
