Los Angeles, CA (Vocus) September 30, 2010
A record-breaking attendance is expected for the next Quinceanera.com Expo and Fashion Show proving that the cultural and festive Quinceañera phenomenon is rising again, hand-in-hand with the slow, but steady recovery from the American economic slow down. Over 2,000 families attended the previous Quinceañera.com Expo and many more families have already registered to attend the next event. The expo and fashion show drew more than 400 young girls in search of the best alternatives for their long-awaited fifteenth birthday celebration.
The Hilton Hotel in Ontario was selected for the upcoming Quince expo to be held on October 3 from 12pm to 5pm. The event is free and open to the public, a common practice for hosting company, El Clasificado, which has connected families in the Hispanic community with hundreds of businesses providing products and services for quinceañera celebrations over the last 22 years.
The Ontario Expo promises over 50 booths offering every possible service for the upcoming festivities including reception halls, cakes, flowers, decorations, food and catering, and even DJs, some of which have been sponsoring the event since the first Quinceanera.com expo in 2006.
The much anticipated Quinceañera dress and accessories fashion show will showcase the latest trends, many from well known brands, in traditional and fashionista Quince celebration attire. Elegant Touch and Roxy’s Bridal, two local merchants, will present their newest dress designs on the runway and give attendees an upfront view of this season’s fashion trends.
As a final treat, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a raffle to win one of three dresses, one of which is valued at $2,500. One quinceañera dress to be raffled has been created by Mexican fashion designer Mitzy, known worldwide for designing Thalia’s wedding dress. Elegant Touch will also be raffling one of their designs for a lucky winner that attends the expo. The third Quinceanera dress will be given away through a mobile contest and the winner will be announced on October 4 on Quinceanera.com.
Also featured will be the winner of Quinceanera.com’s “cover girl” contest, Alexus Barrantes, who will open the fashion show and receive a $650 scholarship, courtesy of the Patricia Sturla Academy of Acting and Modeling.

Mi Quince Planner on Facebook will help young quince girls organize and share their quinceañera plans with their Facebook friends. The Facebook App will enable businesses to offer friendly offers and connection channels to prospective Quinceañeras.
