SEPTEMBER 11 – The Migrant Worker Community Program and the Consulate of Mexico in Leamington join forces to present the 15th Annual Fiestas Patrias Celebration, starting at 3:30 pm at the Roma Club in Leamington.
This free, family friendly event celebrates the independence of Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico, the home countries of many of the agricultural migrant workers in the Kingsville, Leamington and surrounding communities, and provides an opportunity to recognize their contribution to our economy.
The entertainment includes the seven-member mariachi band Viva Mexico with a group of folkloric dancers; singer Beatriz Montes from Michigan; “El Charrito” from Detroit; and an eight-member ensemble from Mexico called “Son Lince”. There will be free unique balloons designed by Jangle the Magic Clown for the children and ethnic foods such as sweet breads, tacos, burritos, and tortillas for sale.
The closing ceremony will include “El Grito” led by Alberto Bernal, Consul, Consulate of Mexico in Leamington and the singing of national anthems.
