Party pics: Cinco de Mayo 2013 at Imperial
Imperial, Ferndale's hip taco cantina, held a unique celebration of Cinco de Mayo with their El Dia de la Batalla weekend. The centerpiece of the event was an art installation of custom-painted skateboards. Metromix visited on Friday when several of the Detroit-based artists were on hand to meet the public. All of the skateboards displayed were available for purchase via online auction with the proceeds benefiting the Ferndale Football Boosters Eagles Nest and Detroit's Downtown Youth Boxing Gym. The three-day event concluded on Cinco de Mayo with a traditional pig roast and hot rod car display.
