Celebrating Latino Culture for Hispanic Heritage Month

Hispanic Heritage Month is an annual event celebrating the richness of Latino culture and honoring our heritage. Each year from September 15 through October 15, Latino heritage is recognized, along with the achievements of Latinos in history. It’s a wonderful time to pass on the beauty of Latino culture to children of Latino descent or expose any child to learning about a diverse group of people and new cultures.
