New "El Grito" Queen Raquel Velasquez, 16, after being crowned by Carlos Ponce Martinez, left, consul general of Mexico to San Jose. Sunday’s celebration in Salinas marked September 16th's anniversary of Mexico’s independence from Spain. The annual fiesta, which occupies East Alisal Street between Wood and Sanborn, brimmed as usual with booths selling patriotic souvenirs and all manner of food and drink. Local businesses and nonprofits manned booths with information about health and community programs, while traditional “bandas” filled the afternoon with dance music and good cheer.
