Hundreds gather in Bentonville for Hispanic Heritage Month festival
Hispanic Heritage Month is underway and people gathered in Bentonville for a festival on Saturday.
People enjoyed live music, food, drinks, and activities for kids.
Karla Perreault is from Puerto Rico and attended the festival.
“I still miss Puerto Rico from time to time we still miss it, but I do love Arkansas,” Perreault said.
Perreault added that the festival made her feel closer to home after moving to Arkansas several years ago.
“Not just that I’m also learning going booth to booth and learning about other Hispanic cultures as well,” Perreault said.
Alexandro Fernandez moved to Arkansas from Mexico six years ago.
“I met my wife in Mexico,” Fernandez said. “She’s originally from here so we decided that time just to try here.”
Fernandez wants his son to understand the Hispanic heritage that was on display.
“He’s part of not just the local culture,” Fernandez said. “There’s more like his family back in Mexico, and Hispanic heritage, it’s important for me to let him know.”
