WSBID Kicks Off Hispanic Heritage Month with Movie Night


The rain held off on Saturday evening, September 14, in time for the outdoor showing of the movie, “Coco” as part of WSBID’s recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month. A month-long celebration taking place from September 15 through October 15, Hispanic Heritage Month acknowledges and celebrates the histories, centuries-old traditions and customs, cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans.

Children and families gathered at the big screen on the Square to watch “Coco” the Academy Award winning Disney movie rich in Hispanic culture, custom and music. Inspired by the Mexican traditional celebration of the Day of the Dead, “Coco” tells the story of a young boy who wants to be a musician and finds himself on an adventure in the land of the dead.

All who attended enjoyed the movie while snacking on popcorn and relished in the transformation of the Square into a cinematic experience.
