There will also be a mariachi performed by Ireson Latin Band as well as an Aztec dance by the Ballet Folklorico de Mexico.

Attendees can also immerse themselves in an augmented reality installation based on the upcoming Disney/Pixar animated film Coco.

Foodies will get to taste Senor Taco's signature array of tacos and quesadillas, and Margaritas' tamales, elotes (mexican grilled corn) and more.
