Dozens of crafts vendors, Mexican food, mural painting, music by David Campos of Zapato Viejo, a piñata raffle and a display of Mexican folk art are on tap at this month’s Square Tomatoes Crafts Fair, which celebrates Cinco de Mayo on Sunday. The event will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Central Park, Fourth and C streets in downtown Davis.

Several artists at the fair are inspired by their Mexican heritage. Painter and muralist John Huerta displays paintings and cards depicting tropical flowers: calla lilies, poppies and birds of paradise. Huerta is best known for his collection of brightly colored Day of the Dead skeletons.

Sheyna DeWein transforms glassware with paint or decoupage to illustrate Mexican themes. Luis Montez has made a family business of up-cycling unused candy wrappers. The wrappers were products of an excessive print run that would have been discarded. At his booth, Montez weaves brightly colored wrappers into purses and sells purses made by other family members.

Visitors who like Mayan glyphs can find silver and bronze glyphs at Sally Parker’s table, including pendants of the quetzal bird and the jaguar.

Craft leader Monica Riche will supervise a table where guests can try their hand at Mexican design. Beginners and young artists can color black-and-white folk art designs or help paint a group mural.

Hungry visitors can eat traditional Mexican cuisine including tacos, burritos, carnitas and carne asada brought by Sergio and Christina Villalobos of Rico’s Pizza.
