The Hispanic-American Women’s Association hosted its annual Hispanic Heritage Festival on Sunday
The Hispanic-American Women’s Association hosted its annual Hispanic Heritage Festival on Sunday.
The organization has put on the festival for more than a decade, but this was the first time it was held at Fluor Field in downtown Greenville.
The event included live music, food, drinks, dancing, crafts and activities for kids.
Organizers say the festival helps spread awareness of and educate people about the Hispanic culture.
“I really believe that education is the path to go and is the way that we can give back to the community and then give people and students who are worthy the abilities to go further,” Patricia Vivas, with the Hispanic-American Women’s Association, said.
Vivas says the festival also raises money to help Latin American students and families of lower socioeconomic backgrounds.
Hispanic Heritage Month is from Sept. 15 through Oct. 15.
