The annual Placentia Tamales Festival is a unique and small affair. While they boast some excellent family and musical entertainment, let's be real here— not many people would ever want to turn down the sumptuous, delicious corn husk-wrapped delight that is a tamale. Get your fill here, with armies of tamaleros and -leras serving up tamales by the batch for hungry and expectant bellies. Mariachi Divas, the Darden Sisters and Groupo Fenix are set to perform, while kids can visit with Santa or witness the Christmas Palm Tree Lighting ceremony. Just remember to purchase enough tamale goodness for your future hungry self tomorrow morning. You'll definitely thank yourself for it.
