Hispanic Heritage Month
Hispanic Heritage Month is September 15 to October 15.
The event has been celebrated since 1968 and involves demonstrations of Latin American culture, art, and history. Many Americans know that Mexican Independence is celeb
rated on September 15 and 16, but Hispanic Heritage Month also includes the anniversaries of independence in Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Chile and Nicaragua.
