Fiesta still flying high

There's still plenty to take in before the annual Chasco Fiesta wraps up Saturday in downtown New Port Richey. Among the offerings to close out this year's nine-day run: carnival rides, food vendors, barbecue and a Native American Festival. A 5K race starts at 8 a.m. Saturday to benefit Pasco Special Olympics. One of the longest-running boat parades in Florida makes way at 1 p.m. Saturday on the Pitlachascotee River. Music offerings include a free concert with oldies bands from 7 to 10:45 p.m. Friday and a paid classic rock concert from 5 to 11 p.m. Saturday, featuring Jefferson Starship and local favorites the Time Bandits. Hours for the carnival and midway are from 5 to 11 p.m. Friday and from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday.

What would have been the 25th annual Dia de los Muertos Fiesta on Saturday had to be canceled this year because of Hurricane Irma. The folk festival will be back next year.
