The Cesar Chavez committee had to change the march route, breaking tradition, and will not go through the city of San Fernando this year. The reason is simple...economic. But the organizers are excited nonetheless.
The group will then head down Laurel Canyon Blvd and end up at Richie Valens Park in Pacoima. A band will play; there's a health fair, entertainment booths, and of course, some great Mexican food. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is also expected to speak at the event.
