Mexican Masked Wrestlers Return to Tacoma

One of the more colorful events you'll see returns to Tacoma this spring: For the third year in a row the University of Puget Sound will welcome the luchadors of Lucha Libre Volcánica to campus. What, you're not familiar with lucha libre?

Lucha libre is a highly acrobatic form of professional wrestling that started in Mexico in the early 1900. Its performers are often noted for wearing fantastical costumes, colorful masks, and performing daring highflying attacks on each other. Although relatively new to the US, in Mexico lucha libre’s popularity is second only to soccer.

Lucha Libre Volcanica is billed as the only authentic lucha libre troupe in the Pacific Northwest, promising you a chance to enjoy local talent in a distinctly non-local show.

Come watch your local masked warriors perform daring, highflying, acrobatic stunts of epic proportions at the largest lucha lucha libre event on the West Coast.  

The public is invited to Lucha de Sound III on Saturday, March 29. The event is a fundraiser for UPS's Community for Hispanic Awareness (CHispA) student organization's Leadership Scholarship fund, which will provide financial assistance for a Latino student who has demonstrated need. Read the full press release here.

Sounds like a good time to us.
