Honoring Mexican culture in Livermore

Celebration to include music, dance, food and more

It's fiesta time!

A free Hispanic Heritage Day Fiesta is being held from 4-7 p.m. this Saturday with mariachi music folk dance and songs by Grupo Folklorica Tlapalli at the Bankhead Theater Plaza on First Street in Livermore.

The family-friendly event, honoring Mexican culture and heritage, will include displays of traditional art, artifacts and clothing. Authentic Mexican food will be available for sale.
