A Jamaica in Texas

Me gusta vivir donde se celebran fiestas de esta índole. ¡Viva la raza humana! ¡Viva la harmonía! ¡Viva la compaginación de los pueblos! ¡Vivan los tamales hechos en casa!

San Luis Catholic Church in Yorktown will host its annual Jamaica April 23 at San Luis, 502 E. 2nd St. It will begin with Mass at 8 a.m. in the church. Mariachi music will be provided during the Mass. Breakfast items and menudo will be available after Mass.

A meal of carne guisada with rice and beans will be served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Plates, to-go or dine-in, will be $14 each. Hamburgers and homemade tamales will also be sold.

At noon, the Ballet Folklorico de Goliad will perform in the hall. Live entertainment will include Vertigo at 12:30 p.m., El Grupo Sensacion at 1:45 p.m., DJ David Guerrero at 2 p.m., Lone Pistolero at 4 p.m. and Fantazzia at 5:30 p.m. Also planned throughout the day are live and silent auctions, a generous raffle, bingo, country store, vendor booths, cake walk, children’s activities, horseshoes and cornhole tournaments.

About JMN

I live in Texas and devote much of my time to easel painting on an amateur basis. I stream a lot of music, mostly jazz, throughout the day. I like to read and memorize poetry.
