Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month
The United States observes Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 through October 15, to celebrate the culture and traditions of those who trace their roots to Spain, Mexico and the Spanish-speaking nations of Central America, South America and the Caribbean. This year marks 450 years since Pensacola was founded by Spanish explorers. Since then, Hispanic culture and history have enriched Florida's communities, economy and way of life in a wide variety of ways. Go to the Florida Hispanic Heritage Month Web page to learn more.
