Business Mercado was this past Saturday at the Abilene civic center. What I expected was a very subdued and quite affair. Was I surprised when I walked into the civic center and was greeted with the wonderful sounds of a Mariachi band. Mariachi Alma Mexicana set the mood and made me feel like I was in a real Mercado (Market) in Mexico. The air was filled with sound and the smell of fresh tamales, compliments of our local United Super Markets. This Free to the public event was attended by people of all walks of life and all ages. One thing we all had in common, was that, when the Mariachi Alma Mexicana played we all stopped to listen, sing along, danced or swayed to the beat of the music. Oh and yes there were over one hundred businesses represented and y es they were talking business and how they could better serve us.
