Each year, Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15 - October 15. The celebration starts in the middle of the month, as opposed to the end, because the 15th marks the independence days of five Latin America countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico, Chile, and Belize follow shortly after, on the 16th, 18th and 21st. Check out the events happening around Champaign-Urbana!
