Viva la salsa! Heat things up this Uno de Mayo at the first ever Florida Salsa Fest in Thornton Park, where hot and spicy sauces reign supreme. Sway to salsa music, shake it with fiery salsa dancers from Mango's Tropical Cafe and sample all-you-can-eat tastings from 30 different salsas from professional and amateur chefs. Plus, with the Corona and tequila flowing, it’s the perfect way to ramp up to Thursday’s sizzling Cinco celebrations.

We’re taking over Eola Drive between Pine and Mariposa streets, so plan on parking elsewhere. If all that salsa doesn’t warm your insides, this might: This block party also benefits the Barber Fund, which helps men, women and children battling various cancers.



1-4 p.m. Sunday, May 1 | Mucho Orlando, 101 S. Eola Drive | floridasalsafest.com | $15
