No sizzle, no salsa in Old Town

There won't be any sizzle or salsa in Old town this Cinco de Mayo.

Those who have grown accustomed to scorching their taste buds at the Old Town Association's annual Sizzlin Salsa will have to wait until fall.

Ed Dominick, president of the OTA, said the event wasn't planned for because there was no funding for it back in September when preparations usually begin.

"We held off on all events until we got financially capable again," Dominick said.

The OTA is beginning to plan for some events, though. Dominick recently addressed the Cottonwood city council with plans for the Old Town Farmer's Market and a summer concert series.

"We've made our comeback," Dominick said.

In the future, Sizzlin Salsa might come back to the month of May, but Dominick said there are many other Cinco de Mayo events in the area and competing with them will be taken into consideration.

The event has also lost money over the past two years, according to Dominick. He said some changes might be made to the event.

"We need to revisit the way we do it," Dominick said.
