Hispanic Heritage month kicks off in Mill Creek
MILL CREEK, Wash., September 3, 2022 – Hundreds came to celebrate the beautiful cultures of Latin America during Gold Creek en Español’s Hispanic Heritage event today where many learned about Hispanic Latino cultures through music and dance.
The event began with a concert in The Forum at noon, followed by a parade down Main Street at 2:00 p.m., and ending with a Festival at Gold Creek Community Church that includes traditional Latin-American entertainment, food, and activities.
“Having this in Mill Creek show the city’s committed to honoring the diversity, culture and contributions of all peoples of Latin nations to the United States and our region,” said Lynnwood Councilwoman Julieta Altamirano-Crosby. “Maribel Solorio and her family do a great job organizing and putting on this event every year. I look forward helping to keep this an annual tradition for the county.”
This day of celebration goes hand in hand with Hispanic Heritage month that begins on September 15 and embraces the 2022 theme, Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation.
