What’s New in PQ?

Happy New Year, PQ! After all the winter festivities we are heading into spring and summer with an energized sense of community action for our community events. We need to take on funding our events at a whole new level due to the elimination of funding for PQ. We’re adopting a super heroes theme to keep our traditions going and have put on our fundraising capes as PQ Heroes (Fiesta & Fireworks Committee Members/Volunteers), and local restaurants and event sponsors are all in. Visit our community calendar for dine-out fundraisers being held in February and March for the whole family.

Together, we are committed to being funded for our two big events coming in May and July: the 25th Fiesta de los Penasquitos & Parade, May 3, with this year’s theme of PQ Local Heroes; and the community-sponsored PQ Fireworks Show & Festival on July 3.

Traditionally the first weekend in May is our time to celebrate our thriving community, with events for the whole family:

Saturday, May 2

• PQ 5K Fun Run
• Rancho Family YMCA PQ Farmers Market

Sunday, May 3

• 5th Annual Parade de los Peñasquitos
• 25th Annual Fiesta de los Peñasquitos

There are many ways you can participate – as a resident, artist, or business. Please visit our website for details on:

• Fiesta sponsorship packages
• 4th & 5th Grade Fiesta Theme Art Contest
• Reserving a booth
• Being part of the entertainment
• Parade participation
• Volunteer opportunities
• Business of the Year Award
• Youth Community Service Award
• Volunteer of the Year Award

Also, annual RPTC Board elections happen at the fiesta. Please visit our website to learn how you can represent your neighborhood on the town council. The proceeds from the fiesta are used to fund our community grants, sponsorships, and recognition programs. Be part of the team that decides just how we do this!

The fiesta is our opportunity to showcase what a wonderful community we have in PQ and we know this one will be great!
