Dia del Niño- with a niño

I'm not sure who is more excited about the treat bag!

I’m sure my husband was more excited about Dia del niño this year than our son, since he is only 11 months old. I have to admit, I felt that the celebration at Mercado Central in Minneapolis was a little underwhelming.

First sucker!

There was a little stand where kids could go up and pick up a package a goodies and a sucker. There were also clowns making balloon animals, which fascinated our son for a little while. After grabbing a snack from Manny’s Tortas we went outside and had some Mexican style corn (elotes) with cream, cotija cheese and chile. That was the best part of the day in my book!


First elote- Mexican-style roasted corn.


Watching his balloon animal being made. He wouldn't let go of his little treat bag... mainly because of the noisy cellophane, I think, and not because he know what the goodies inside were.



Free face painting. He's not really sure what's going on.

Fascinated by the clown... from a safe distance of course.
