The Genoa Area Chamber of Commerce and the Kishwaukee Valley Wanderers are proud to present the Lucha Libre stars of Mexico. This special performance features five high-flying, hard-hitting matches and over twenty wrestlers, including stars such as El Maleficio, Corazon de Guerrero, Potro Romano and Alas de Fuego.
Mexico’s version of professional wrestling (the term literally means free-style wrestling) is one of the country’s biggest spectator activities today, eclipsed only in popularity by soccer. Characterized by colorful masks, flamboyant personalities and a whole lot of Spandex, it’s an edge-of-your-seat spectacle like no other and something that shouldn’t be missed.
Volksfest weekend continues Saturday & Sunday with a Volksmarch, Craft Beer & Wine Fest, and the Great Genoa Duck Race!
