Lingering rainclouds and lingering fears from recent federal immigration arrests at Avondale’s Kaolin Mushrooms started Kennett Square’s Cinco de Mayo festival off slowly, but by the afternoon, all that was left lingering was hundreds of celebrants.

“We’re here, and we’re celebrating,” said festival organizer Kathleen Snyder in a NewsWorks report by Laura Benshoff.

The annual Cinco de Mayo party fills Kennett Square’s State Street with good food, good music, good dancing, and more than 100 vendors selling all kinds of other goods.

“Vendor permits sold out,” the article explained. “Attendees came from Reading and Conshohocken, from Bellmawr, N.J., and Newark, Del.”
