Every Cinco de Mayo or major soccer game in downtown Fresno, folks flock there. The reality is downtown is where many Hispanics go because of the shops there. Why not have a “Cinco de Mayo Plaza,” where mariachis can play on weekends?
There have been many ideas on the table, most of them to oust Mexican culture from the Fulton Mall. It is time for Fresno leaders to be realistic and look at the meat of the situation: Affluent folks are not going to downtown Fresno.
