Dulceria Mayra's y Mas: Small Place Packs a Huge Party

Page 3 of 3

The neat thing about Mayra's is that she offers party packages to make it more convenient for your fiesta planning. That means you can buy a package including balloons, piñatas, tables, chairs, a bounce house, etc. cheaper than buying all those things separately from different stores.

Ramirez told us she had two other locations (one on 21st and McDowell and one on 13th and McDowell) before she made 16th Street her store's home. She runs the place herself.

Behind the store, there is an entire room dedicated to piñatas - it's really a child's dream. It's impossible to stand up and not have the paper mache frills graze your forehead. They vary in size and price but you won't have a problem getting a nice one for around 15 bucks.
