Hispanic Heritage Celebration Exhibit
Orange County Regional History Center

Sept. 3 through Oct. 30, 2016
Reception: September 16, 2016
5:30 – 7:30 PM
Each year, Orange County and the nation observe Hispanic Heritage Month by celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of Americans whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.
The observation began in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week and was expanded in 1988 by President Ronald Reagan to the 30-day period from September 15 to October 15.
The date of September 15 was chosen because it’s the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua.
Mexico and Chile also celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively. October 12, celebrated as Columbus Day or El Día de la Raza, also falls within Hispanic Heritage Month.
