With a successful and impactful debut under their belt, Casa de Amigos will host the second-annual Familia Fest from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday at 1101 Garden Lane. 
Held on Mexican Independence Day and coinciding with National Hispanic Heritage Month, Casa de Amigos’ Development Director Sheena Green spoke to the Reporter-Telegram about the significance of community recognition and engagement.
“We serve a lot of Hispanics in the West Texas community, so we want to show our support,” Green said. “We’re a multicultural community center, so I feel like we bridge that gap of better understanding other heritages and cultural differences. Casa de Amigos is here, and we have various amounts of services and resources to offer the community, not just during Hispanic Heritage Month but throughout the year.”
Friday’s festivities include folkloric dances by the Hispanic Cultural Center of Midland; live Mariachi; games such as limbo, water balloon toss and jumbo Jenga; door prizes raffled every 15 minutes with items such as Domino’s coupons and Dairy Queen dilly bars; and food. The indoor area will include Casa de Amigos information stations while the fun happens out front.
Admission is free and open to everyone. For more information about Familia Fest and Casa de Amigos, visit or
Established in 1964, the Case de Amigos aims to empower community members to meet their individual and family needs through youth and adult education, senior services, social services and health wellness.
