This year's event will run from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. and during intermission will include ring safety and wrestling technique demonstrations for kids.

The participating luchadores include The French Cactus, Dos Domino Cara, Invictus, Kidd foxXx, Willie Da Bomb, Mike Strong, The Misfit Roxxi, Demeter the She-Cat, Bazooka, Bandolero, Skyde Jr and Gringo Loco. 

The Unity Park Advisory Council will be hosting a raffle with autographed photos of wrestling superstars, hand-made lucha libre masks and lucha libre T-shirts during the event.
