Fans were encouraged to arrive early as festivities began at 11 a.m. along the Plaza and 4th Street and included Lucha Libre USA wrestling matches, food trucks, tailgate games and inflatables. In addition, there were Folklorico dancers and Mariachi performers throughout the ballpark prior to the game.

The D-backs also honored Helios Education Foundation’s President and CEO Paul J. Luna with their 2012 Hispanic Community Leadership Award. This award recognizes prominent community and business leaders who have contributed significantly to the Hispanic community. Paul was recognized on the field prior to the game and had the honor of throwing out the first pitch.
