This goes live today, sorry about the mix-up yesterday. Whether you like them crunchy or soft, spicy or mild, tacos are awesome. Fans are certain to find heaven in Civic Center Park on Saturday, August 20 during Tacolandia, Westword’s annual celebration of street tacos from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Upwards or 40 restaurants and tacquerias will offer samples of their signature tacos. But that’s just the start of the fiesta. There will be entertainment, too, including live performances by musicians and dancers and a Saints & Sinners car show.
