“El Paolo Ensebao”

Today is the last day to catch the Grease Pole Festival at the Pucho Olivencia Center. If you’re one of those people who is always looking to attend an event that is not exactly mainstream, this is worth checking out. Of course the grand finale – the grease pole competition – is what festival-goers really look forward to, but there is plenty to see and do up until that point. In a city where residents pride themselves on the number of festivals and the gigantic efforts that go into them, it can be fun to mix them up from year to year.

The Grease Pole Festival is celebrating its 41st year and is considered the oldest ethnic festival in the city – that alone is a reason to attend. If you think that you’re running out of time to add the festival to today’s plans, then know that it starts at noon and ends at 10pm. That’s plenty of time to swing by for some Hispanic food and Latin music – plus, don’t forget that the climbing of the pole is worth the price of admission. Well, it would be if there was even a cover to get in!
