Councilmember of the City of Los Angeles, Jose Huizar presented all performers a Certificate of Appreciation as well as beautifully elaborate City Council proclamation.
Mexican powerhouse singer-songwriter-actress, and long-time childhood friend, Angelica Vale, delivered a super fan treat as she surprised Cristian Castro with the first ever Grand Fiesta Marshal award. The crowd roared in applause as Cristian asked 'La Vale' to join him singing his perennial hit "Lloviendo Estrellas". Fiesta fans erupted when the impromptu duet culminated the song in a shower of red confetti and the crowd sang along. All performers joined Cristian and Angelica on stage for one closing encore.
