Bay Area Proud

Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month


Mes de la Herencia Hispana.... Hispanic Heritage month is September 15th - October 15th. We are fortunate to live in a culturally diverse country, and this month we celebrate Hispanic Heritage, which has a very rich backround in the United States. Starting on September 15th in celebration of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua independence days, the Bay Area will be host to Los Spartans football night, the Hispanic Foundation Ball, VivaFest! at the Tech Museum, and many more fun activities. What are you doing to celebrate?
