Here are some answers to some commonly asked questions about the Pachuco Ball!

Q: Do we need to dress up?
A: If you’ve got a zoot suit, do you really need a better excuse to wear it than to go to a Pachuco Ball? But if you don’t, you can still hang with us. Just come dressed to dance and have a great time!

Q: Do we have to pay for parking?
A: No. We got you covered.

Q: Is there a secure parking area if I bring my lowrider or classic car?
A: Indeed. There will be a secure and designated area for your sweet ride. For more info, contact Anita Gonzales: 951-255-1342, Rene “Pecas” Camargo: 951-443-7626, or Mr Blue: 951-204-6613.

Q: It’s August. In Lake Perris. Is the event happening inside? Is there A/C?
A: We wouldn’t leave you out in the heat. Yes, the Pachuco Ball is indoors inside Harrison Hall, WITH A/C! The only way you’re going to break a sweat is if you dance . . . and you better dance.

Q: What’s included in the $50?
