The Hispanic Heritage Month runs from mid-September to mid-October each year as a way to paying tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society.
This year, five local Chick-fil-A restaurants will gather at Dreher Park, Pavillion 3 on Saturday, September 7 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This free event is open to all to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. Attendees will enjoy Latin music by DJ Carlos Leon, games, free food, and a visit from the Chick-fil-A Cow.
Restaurants participating in the event are Royal Palm Beach, Wellington, Northlake, Okeechobee and Turnpike, Palm Beach Lakes. Each restaurant will supply food, activities for children, and prizes. The event plans to draw over 1,500 residents as well as community leaders from the Hispanic community.
By the way, did you know…
September 15 of every year was chosen as the starting point for the Hispanic Heritage Month celebration because it is the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua.
