Fiesta de Salud

Tuesday, May 1, 2018 by Katy McElroy

If the sunny days of spring have inspired you to get healthier, Austin Public Health’s “health party” is where you should be this weekend. At the free, family-oriented Fiesta de Salud, you can get free immunizations and health screenings including cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar and eye exams. There will be activities to get you moving, such as boot camp demonstrations and Zumba, as well as something called a “bike rodeo,” and even bike giveaways, lotería and bingo for those who are feeling lucky. The Austin Fire Department is bringing a fire truck to show off and, this being Austin, there will of course be live music. Finally, for immigrant communities, the Austin Police Department and American Gateways are providing a “know your rights” session. Nos vemos en la fiesta at the Oswaldo A.B. Cantu/Pan American Recreation Center, 2100 E. Third St., on Saturday, May 5, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
