Downtown Los Angeles on Sunday will play host to the 29th annual Fiesta Broadway, a street festival billed as the largest Cinco de Mayo celebration in the country.

The festival, which runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., is expected to draw thousands of visitors with its food booths, carnival-style games and Latin American musical artists. Though Cinco de Mayo is a week away, the festival has been held on the last weekend in April since it began in 1990.

The festival will take over 10 blocks in the heart of downtown. Broadway will be closed between Temple and Hill streets, and 1st through 4th street will all be closed at Broadway until 5 a.m. Monday.
