It’s been extremely stressful for the group E.A.S.T. who are trying to pull together a Cinco de Mayo Parade for East Pueblo this year.  Back in March the City Council woman Eva Montoya (her alone) decided the parade would be cancelled because of construction at El Centro (the park where the ended last year).  The newly formed E.A.S.T. group with 31 members present decided the parade should forge ahead and a new route be used this year to accommodate this.  So, an organizing committee was formed and the work began, to set in motion a “Legendary Cinco de Mayo Parade -Car, Truck & Bike Show & Shine” event.   They wanted the parade to go east on 4th St. (a state hwy that runs through town) where we could easily make a right turn into a huge (very unused) park equipped with a lap road for the car show.   However, after obtaining an ok from CDOT to use the road, Chief Velez of Pueblo PD decided we were NOT going to use 4th St.  He was adamant that he stand firm on record saying NO.

We have Alais Clay and Wondering Monks willing to do a concert here in Pueblo for Cinco de Mayo to raise funds for the “Pueblo House”. We’ll be hosting them in our little house if it’s ready. We’re planning an event in the park (either Erie or Sticker) after the street parade from Safeway and down 8th St. on the east side. We’d love to have two shows, a concert on Friday night and then again on Saturday.  The message of “occupy for social & economic justice” is the theme?   Both musicians bring political messages through their music and both are very good. We could use some help organizing this event too so please offer if you can.  OTR, Pueblo House, Occupy Pueblo, and “Idle No More” will be taking part in the event. We NEED this to help educate the masses about our world today and doing it with music in the park just seems perfect. (more…)
