Celebrate culture while having some fun

Learn more of your neighbors and from where they did come

Diversity makes us the nation we are

Follow these clues and you'll be on par

Clue #1

A long snowy winter and a blink of a spring

We've earned our fair weather and the joy it will bring

Like the burst of a piñata, it could be your hit

Twelve years and counting, keep looking, don't quit

Uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco and seis

Publico land must be your base

Say "hola" to friends as you look for the peso

The goal is to be "Livin' La Vida Queso"

Clue #2

At the shiny new plant on the village's east side

Before trees leave and the road gets too wide

Say, "Taco curds, please!" to the girl in the bonnet

Before struggling too much with this odd little sonnet

Are you wearing your button with a curd in a hat?

And a mustache to boot, can you imagine that?

The theme resembles "South of the Border"

Time spent there is not in order

Clue #3

Hot-dipped curds will earn cheers, no doubt

Enter the contest, but please don't pout

Because it matters not whether you win or lose

But that you played the game and read the clues

Parking here and parking there

Between the slots you must take care

Sit back, relax, and rest your feet

At ground level you'll find the treat
