The Merced County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce invites you and your family to our First Annual Salsa at the Lake Festival.  Come out and celebrate father’s day at the lake and bring the entire family.  The plan is to have fun! We will have music, kids corner, food and craft vendors, Car Exhibit, mariachi band, father/child activities, beer garden, and everything salsa.

You are welcome to participate in the contests themed around Salsa. We will have a salsa dancing contest and a salsa making contest.  Also, for the brave dads, we will be having a Jalapeno eating contest!
