Celebrating Hispanic heritage in Cache Valley

To celebrate the many people of Hispanic heritage in the Cache Valley, the Logan Library is holding the first Hispanic Heritage Festival on Saturday. Sherrie Mortensen with the library’s Hispanic Advisory Committee told KVNU that they hope this will become an annual event.

“From 10 o’clock in the morning until 2 in the afternoon we’ll be holding activities in the plaza that’s between the library and city hall,” said Mortensen. “We have several authentic Hispanic food vendors coming with all kinds of treats from tacos to churros to lemonada. 

“Also out in the plaza we have a Ballet Folklorico group coming and we have students from the Latinos in Action at Logan High School who are going to do some performances.”

She said this is not the first time the library has celebrated Hispanic culture.  “Last year we celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month which is (from) September 15th to October 15th with an El Chavo event with Latino dancing,” in addition to  other Hispanic-themed events.

Mortensen said the Saturday event will also have free crafts and activities for kids, including free balloon animals, face painting and much more. For more information you can visit the Logan Library website: htttp://library.loganutah.org  or call 435-716-9121.
