September 15 to October 15 is National Hispanic American Heritage Month. Today, we take the time to pay tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society. National Hispanic Heritage Month traditionally honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans as we celebrate heritage rooted in all Latin American countries.

Locally, we will be celebrating the many rich and diverse cultures that can be found in Franklin County and around the Commonwealth of Kentucky with our International Festival on October 14th, 2023. The event will take place at Lakeview Park from 4 PM to 8 PM.
