“Literally everybody I run into says their going so I’m hoping we have enough tacos for everybody,” said Santellana. “To tell you the truth and if it ends up being a really good event, we’re just going to have another one next year. We got t-shirts printed, we have a band coming, somebody’s going to be painting faces, custom t-shirts so it’s a lot going on.”
