National Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated annually from September 15 until October 15. The month celebrates the contributions and influence of Hispanic Americans to the history, culture, and achievements for the United States. There are many ways to honor Hispanic Heritage Month and learn more about the different cultures that make up Hispanic heritage! One great way is to support Latino-owned businesses and restaurants!
