Tacopalooza 2018

Tacopalooza 2018

Benefiting ShareBaby, The Hampden Family Center & The Center for Urban Families

July 3, 2018 – La Food Marketa

Temperatures hovering in the upper 90’s didn’t dissuade scores of folks from turning out at “Tacopalooza,” the second annual party thrown by La Food Marketa.

 The place was packed, both outside and in.

Even a brief downpour didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits. Folks just scooted under cover to wait out the 20 minute drenching and then returned to the patio as the last few drops were making their retreat.

Meanwhile, event host chef/owner Chad Gauss and his crew kept the good stuff coming…
