Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner and the Tucson Taco Festival, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. today, is the perfect place to build up taco-eating and tequila-drinking endurance before the big day.

The Taco Festival is at Rillito Downs, 4502 N. 1st Ave., and costs $10 per person, kids under 12 are free, plus $2 for every taco sample. Twenty-five taco teams comprised of professionals and amateurs will battle it out to make the winning taco and receive a $5,000 prize. The competition categories are: chicken, beef, pork, and fish plus best salsa, guacamole, anything goes taco, and best booth design.

If stuffing your face with tasty tacos isn’t enough fun, there’s Lucha Libre wrestling to enjoy, and plenty to drink. Besides a main bar, bartenders will compete in a Margarita Challenge, and a Boutique Tequila Expo tent will feature over 30 premium tequilas.
