Tamales, tamales, tamales

Escondido’s 2nd annual Tamale Festival put the corn husk-wrapped filled food at the forefront on Saturday at Grape Day Park.

The event celebrates the tamale and other traditional Latin foods that have since become staples here in the county and elsewhere. Besides food and a beer and wine garden, the event also featured a Chihuahua costume contest, games and lucha libre wrestling matches put on by Lucha Underground.
