Apparently another Quinceañera party held in Walnut Creek turned violent, the second in about a month. The Quinceañera is a traditional celebration in Hispanic culture to celebrate a girl’s 15th party, and it took place Saturday night at the city’s Shadelands Civic Arts Center.
The DUBC reports that a major fight broke out, involving 40 people. Police logs show that a major disturbance was reported just after 11 p.m. at a party attended by 200 or more people. But when police arrived the crowd had dispersed.
As I reported earlier, police also were called to a disturbance the night of December 27, this one at Heather Farm Community Center and also involving a Quinceañera. The Mayor of Claycord at Claycord heard from one of his tipsters that the fight involved a group of 30. Police received reports of participants yelling “Northside” and “Southside.” But when police arrived, they couldn’t find a fight. However, they did find graffiti, in white paint, spread throughout the community center. One of the words tagged on the center was “insane.” The other writing was unrecognizable.
