Get ready for the 2018 Communities Cinco De Mayo Benefit Festival at Kiwanis Park in Lufkin. This is the biggest celebration at the park all year, and is for a great cause.

Cino De Mayo can just be a party, but this is a great family event, that does so much good in our our community.

Every year they crown Miss Cinco De Mayo, which isn't is a beauty contest. These are accomplished seniors from Lufkin and Diboll that are working hard to raise funds to win scholarships.

They also try to help families a with critically or chronically ill child. Each year they have a new poster child, you can help by filling the pinata.The 2018 Poster Child, Nancy, suffered multiple strokes & seizures due to a tumor in her heart. After 4 hours of open-heart surgery to remove the tumor, the doctors said that Nancy’s road to recovery would be long and difficult. The family was asked to prepare for the worst. Nancy fought back and is starting to walk, talk, and eat on her own. Nancy continues to make progress towards recovery. Let's show Nancy our support by making this a successful year.
