Last year, this weekend I photographed a few hours of the Cherokee Street Cinco De Mayo celebration in Saint Louis. I have again this year been asked to photograph the celebration along with the parade. I had a great time shooting last year, despite the heat and am looking forward to this weekend for the opposite reason.
A ton of work goes into putting on an event like this and the people behind the festival is a testament to the community that live and work in the Cherokee area. If you happen to be in Saint Louis or near by, be sure to check this out. A good time is sure to be had. Below are a few images rom last year that capture a bit of what the celebration os like.
