Clearwater, FL, September 02, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.
The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988.
The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day or Día de la Raza, which is October 12, falls within this 30 day period.
“This party celebrates the community and partnerships with local non-profits and our social betterment programs,” said event organizer Nicole Biancolini. “Local charities participate alongside programs sponsored by the Church of Scientology - helping educate youth about the truth about drugs, teaching kids about their human rights and bringing common sense values to help people to make good decisions in life.”
This is the 5th block party the Church has held since the opening of the Scientology Information Center on Cleveland Street and the Humanitarian Centers on North Fort Harrison on July 11th, 2015.
Block Party activities will include:
- Live Music
- Carnival games, bouncy houses, face painting, a petting zoo, and a caricature artist.
There is no cost to attend or to participate in the various activities.
