Hispanic Heritage Festival

Hispanic Heritage Month “pays tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society,” according to the official website.  

The Hispanic Heritage Month now lasts from September 15 to October 15 every year, but it first started out as just a week long celebration of in 1968. Twenty years later, in 1988 it expanded to dedicate a whole four weeks for the celebration of being Hispanic.

The celebration starts in the middle of the month, as opposed to the end, because the 15th marks the independence days of five Latin America countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua.   Mexico, Chile, and Belize follow shortly after, on the 16th, 18th and 21st.

Celebration of Hispanic Culture at Tishomingo State Park is on October 13 from 11 am to 4 pm.

Food Vendors, Arts and Crafts, Bounce Houses, Games, Musicians, Guided Nature Trail, and FUN !

Rain date is October 14...
