The mural commemorates Keyla Salazar, a teenage girl from Mayfair who was the victim of the 2019 mass shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival. The mural was created by Jessica Sabogal, a Bay Area artist.

Additionally, children can enjoy a new play area at Mayfair Park which features two structures for children ages 2-12, including five climbers, six slides, four swings, a single large turnstile and three shade canopies.

This family event will also include Aztec dancing, a resource fair, snacks and a screening of Disney Pixar’s “Coco.”
