The event coordinator said, that Hispanic Heritage month is important because it reminds everyone where they came from. It also helps people realize that the Hispanic culture is more diverse than people think.
With the event being held at Memorial Park, airmen from Dyess Air Force Base are able to enjoy the good food and music. Many airmen are from different parts of the country, so the music is either new to them or reminds them of home.
The event was free to the public and lasted until midnight.
