The Kermes Festival was held on the 27th of March from 4:30 pm to 8:00 pm. The festival was to celebrate Mexican heritage. Kermes was hosted by Mr. Grimes and Mrs. Pickett. The exciting event was host to over 1500 people with standing room only. The event featured many exciting booths such as horchata drinks, cultural paintings, henna tattoos, and many school sponsored clubs. The night went on with a bang with three piñatas being smashed, lots of dancing, and an amazing cuisine. The local “taco truck”, as it is famously known, sold tacos to the crowd while pizza was being sold inside the building. The DJ revved up the crowd with many exciting songs including the cha cha slide, and a few of Shakira’s hit singles. They crowd of dancers went well into the night after moving to the outside turn around where a live band continued to feed the crowd. Various booths donated the money they earned to the Kermes foundation. The henna booth alone raised $100 towards the foundation. The Abri counter set up a space to promote their services by handing out pens with paper butterflies on them. Many other booths where selling food or displaying various aspects to display the culture.
