Linfield College to celebrate Hispanic Heritage

Linfield College will host the fifth annual Hispanic Heritage Day on Saturday, Sept. 22, from 2-5:30 p.m. on the intramural field behind Pioneer Hall on campus.

Members of the Yamhill County and campus communities are invited to attend the afternoon event, which recognizes September as Hispanic Heritage Month.

The event will feature music and dancing, including an Aztec dance group and a children’s dance group. Free food will be offered, and tamales, cotton candy, snow cones and Mexican pastries will be offered for sale. Piñata making and breaking, raffles, face painting, flower making and other activities will be featured.

“We wanted to hold a fiesta style celebration to bring awareness about all the cultures of Latin America,” says Paulina Rodriguez, a student who has helped organize the event.

The event is open to the community and sponsored by Linfield College Latinos Adelante and the Multicultural Programs Office. For more information, call 503-883-2574.
