To kick off Hispanic Heritage Month, the City of Inglewood hosted the Hispanic Heritage Festival at Crozer Middle School. The event was hosted by Hot 92.3's very own, Josefa Salinas. The festival was riddled with entertainment, fun areas for kids, information booths, and a spectacular raffle, offering tickets to see Demi Lovato, Legends a Bad boy, and tickets to Knott’s Scary Farm.
Performing at the event were some of the hottest local talent in Southern California such as, Grupo Folklorico Macias, Predrito Regoso, The Reel Band, Sinsoles, Fantasia Dance Ensemble, and El Pichon and Maria Carmen of Michoacan.
To give opening remarks, Mayor James Butts and members of the Inglewood City Council welcomed residents and guests, and reminded folks of the many important contributions Hispanic Americans have made to American history. That said, it is important that we celebrate those accomplishments.
