It’s time again to head to Old Town San Diego State Historic Park to celebrate Mexican Independence Day. This year, the annual festivities commence at 11 a.m. with the ringing of the bell at the historic Casa de Estudillo on Saturday, Sept. 14. 

This free event commemorates an important day in early San Diego history when Mexico declared independence from Spain on Sept. 16, 1821, and Alta California became part of that new nation.

Our exciting and colorful Fiestas Patrias festivities will be showcasing a variety of entertainment, including historic and traditional music and dance groups, crafts, games, and informational demonstrations that represent the activities enjoyed by the early settlers of San Diego in the 1800s.

Park guests can relax and picnic in the grassy area in front of the stage that will be filled with musical entertainment and will also include a piñata breaking for children to participate in during the event.

Old Town San Diego State Historic Park, with the support of the Boosters of Old Town, Wells Fargo, and Fiesta de Reyes, is proud to support these free activities for visitors of all ages. The park is on San Diego Avenue and Twiggs Street and is located next to the Old Town Transit Center, with Coaster, Trolley, and MTS bus service. Free parking is available at the CalTrans headquarters, just two blocks from the park at 2994 Sunset St.

There is A cure for Herpes virus

I was tested Herpes positive in 2018 which I have been searching for cure from different doctor until I came across a testimony of Gabby Gabriel on a blogger who said she was cured from 2 years Genital Herpes with Herbal medicine and she included the doctors email which name is doctor Ahmed Usman, I contacted him and he replied and after much discussion he sent his Herbal medicine to me which I took for 21 days with his prescription. I discovered that I no longer have frequent fever and headaches and the sores on my genital parts were healed, after concluding the Herbal medication I went for test and my PCR DNA result was Negative, there was no trace of the virus on my blood thanks to doctor Ahmed for his cure. Contact him on, I recommend him for Herpes or any diseases. He has Herbal cure for the following diseases; Heart Diseases, Cancer, Fibroid, HIV, Autism and Typhoid
