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.

The Mexican dances will provide a glimpse into the culture of the region, with the vibrantly colored clothes and decorations worn by the dancers reflecting their cultural traditions. Important themes -- such as respect for and communion with nature, as well as religious motifs -- are incorporated into the dances and the outfits.

Hispanic Heritage Day is presented by Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center. For more information, visit
