Families celebrated Cinco de Mayo early this weekend. On Saturday, a special fiesta was held in South Bend's Howard Park.

The festivities started just before lunch time.

Several local Hispanic food and craft vendors sold traditional dishes and items.

One of the highlights of the day was a jalapeno pepper eating contest, and a watermelon eating contest.

Proceeds from Saturday's event benefited St. Adalbert Parish.
