Mexican Independence Day celebration tonight at Governor’s Mansion

The Governor’s Mansion and First Lady Dema Guinn are welcoming an event tonight in honor of Mexican Independence Day. Gov. Kenny Guinn proclaimed Sept. 16 as a day to honor and recognize Mexican-Americans in Nevada and across the nation.

An act of the 90th Congress on Sept. 17, 1968 initially designated a time to recognize the contributions and achievements of Mexican-Americans, and the 100th Congress in August 1988 created a month-long Hispanic Heritage celebration.

The event tonight begins at 6 p.m., with dinner served at 7 p.m.

For more information, contact the Governor’s Mansion at (775) 687-3000.
