April 28, 2013|By Rong-Gong Lin II

Although May 5 is a week away, tens of thousands of Angelenos are expected to converge on downtown Sunday to celebrate Cinco de Mayo as part of the 24th annual Fiesta Broadway, a celebration of music and culture.

A number of streets clustered around City Hall will be closed for the festival, which will run from noon to 6 p.m. Broadway will be closed from Temple to 4th Street; Spring Street from Temple to 1st Street; and 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th streets shut between Spring and Hill streets.

Organizers expect more than 100,000 people.

The festival, which will include numerous food booths, will extend to the event lawn of the new downtown Grand Park, just west of City Hall.

Road closures will be lifted before 5 a.m. Monday.
