Alex Lopez, a pinata maker from Seattle, has earned a reputation for the go-to-person when creating pinatas is concerned. His unique and detailed pinatas are famous all around Seattle's South Park neighborhood.
You want evidence? Here we have a case in point: A 26-foot long, 7-feet tall pinata in the shape of a bridge that contained 450 pounds of candy.
He was asked to construct something memorable for the celebration of the Cinco de Mayo (a traditional Mexican holiday) and also to commemorate the construction of a new bridge in this neighborhood in South Seattle with a prominent Latino community. It took him six weeks and loads of volunteers to accomplish this task. But it was all worth it: The people loved it and this earned him the reputation of Pinata Man.
His 9-5 job is doing tax prep work as an area manager for H&R Block, but Lopez believes in doing What makes him happy, especially when business is slow. So, he makes pinatas, donating many of them for community functions.
