Holiday Tamale-Making Demonstrations - SOLD OUT


Two Demonstrations on Saturday, December 2 at 10:30am and 1:30 pm 


(CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – November 28, 2017) “The two tamale-making demonstrations on December 2 are sold out,” said Laura Jasso, Special Events Program Manager for the Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation Department’s Cultural Services. To accommodate all 128 registered participants, the two demonstrations have been moved from the Galván House to the Lindale Recreation Center, located at 3133 Swantner Drive.

Sandra Vásquez, inventor of the ‘Mas Tamales’ masa spreader, will demonstrate how to make tamales with a glide of the hand. She will teach how to spread masa on a dozen cornhusks in about a minute — that’s fast! The demonstrations include recipes and food samples. Due to the overwhelming response to this holiday favorite, reservations for these demonstrations are closed.
