Tacolandia is one of the most glorious days of the year — it's like Christmas, but instead of toys you get tacos. The June 17 L.A. Weekly event brought together 100-plus taco vendors and thousands of taco lovers for a day filled with more tacos than you ever thought possible, curated by noted Mexican food expert Bill Esparza. Check out these behind-the-scenes photos, and perhaps the world's most beautiful taco close-ups. Photos by Anne Fishbein.
