SAN DIEGO - For nearly six hours, Mariachi music was played at the fourth annual Mariachi Fest on Friday.
The fest was hosted by Azul Y Oro, the San Diego High School Mariachi group. Aside from Azul Y Oro, there were also Marachi groups from surrounding schools such as Premont and Mathis ISD.
Mathis ISD's Mariachi group had attendees dancing with their performances of traditional Mariachi music and Tejano music. Azul Y Oro senior mothers were honored with a yellow carnation.
Making the first Mariachi appearance was the Bernada Jaime Junior High Mariachi group.
All proceeds from the night's event went to the Azul Y Oro fund for new trajes, or uniforms, among other necessitates.
