Last Saturday,  Josué Briones photographed Fiesta del Sol, a festival held July 26-29 along eight blocks of Cermak Road. What started as a block party celebrating the building of Benito Juarez High School in Pilsen back in the 70s has grown into an annual fundraiser organized by Pilsen Neighbors Community Council. Fiesta del Sol features music, community outreach, food, carnival rides, art, and handicrafts.
