Kintock Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month
In honor of Hispanic Heritage month, Kintock is proud to recognize and honor the many contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans, both past and present, to our society. Each of our sites will commemorate the event thoughtfully to acknowledge this annual celebration of the history and culture of the U.S. Latino and Hispanic communities. Hispanic Heritage Month, which spans September 15 to October 15, honors the cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latino heritage rooted in all Latin American countries.
The timing of Hispanic Heritage Month coincides with the Independence Day celebrations of several Latin American nations. September 15 coincides with the Independence Day celebrations of five Central American countries, including Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Those five nations declared their independence from Spain on September 15, 1821.
Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated in many ways, with events such as parades, art exhibitions, concerts and traditional Hispanic food fairs.
Here are some suggestions for celebrating the month.
