This coming Sunday will the seasons first Viva Los Dodger celebration during Opening Weekend, and it includes something very special.  

From a Dodgers press release:
The Dodgers will welcome back former Dodger outfielder Raul Mondesi as part of Dominican Heritage at Viva Los Dodgers this Sunday. Mondesi, current mayor of San Cristobal, Dominican Republic, will be holding a clothing drive to benefit his hometown of San Cristobal. He will accept donations of gently-worn clothing and will sign autographs for fans. Fans that bring a donation will be placed in a priority line for autographs. Viva Los Dodgers autograph sessions are open to all fans with the day's game ticket... Mondesi will also throw the ceremonial first pitch prior to Sunday's game.
HOLY MOLY!  Raul Mondesi will be in town!  And, he'll be singing some autographs for fans.  WooHoo!

UPDATE:  I'm Sorry!  I forgot to mention the time for this event.  Viva Los Dodgers begins at 3:00 PM; about 2 hours before the start of the game.

Dodger coach and SportsNet LA Spanish-language broadcaster Manny Mota will make an appearance and sign autographs for fans as part of Dominican Heritage Day.
As for musical entertainment,
Sunday's family-friendly festival will also feature musical entertainment by La Santa Cecilia, a local Latino alternative rock group and 2014 GRAMMY® award winners for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album.
