La Feria de Los Moles is an annual celebration of the traditional Mexican mole sauce, and this year the showdown is focused on a battle between the styles and flavors of Puebla versus Oaxaca.This event, in its third year, "is organized by the immigrant community of Puebla and Oaxaca residing in United States and is sponsored by City Councilman Jose Huizar and the Los Angeles Council of Mexican Federations in North America (COFEM)," explains the event's PR site. This free, family-friendly event will have not only the food available for purchase, but activities and live performances for attendees to enjoy as well.
