Photographing the one day 1981 Fiesta del Sol in Pilsen was a eye popping experience. Everywhere I looked there was a photo begging to be frozen in time. The modest version in 1981 was held on a dusty Chicago Park District baseball field with stages for the various entertainer that included Ensemble Espanol, the Roberto Clemente Steel Band, The Puppet Place and headliner Vickie Carr. Vendors sold food from wheeled carts throughout the festival. Cops minus their bullet proof vests shared park benches with young men. What could be a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon with your family and friends. Do you know who is in these photos? If so, please chime in and let me know!
