ESCONDIDO — Tamales, one of the world’s earliest forms of portable food, were the center of attention on Saturday at the Escondido Tamale Festival at Grape Day Park.

Wrapped and steamed inside a corn husk the corn dough, typically filled with meats, food has been dated back to 7000 B.C.

The Escondido Downtown Business Association hosted the event, which also celebrated the history and culture of the Mexican and Spanish settlers that have helped shape the community.
