Senior citizens celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

News

One group of senior citizens, some in their mid-90s, are movin’ and groovin’ at the Holiday Park Senior Center.

The Hispanic Heritage Festival offered food, a display of traditional costumes and dancing, all celebrating the countries residents are from.

The director of the event said the annual festival is about embracing diversity, which she said is especially important during a time where some feel negatively judged.

“With this, we make them feel proud of their roots, their traditions, their culture,” said Maria Diaz, Director of the Hispanic Heritage Festival. “They have a lot of things to offer.”

Hispanic Heritage Month is recognized nationally from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15.
