Hispanic Heritage Month


Hispanic Heritage Month: September 15 - October 15.

This month-long celebration begins with a nod to the anniversaries of national independence for a number of Latin American countries. Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua all recognize September 15 as the date of their independence.
