Mexican Americans began celebrating Fiestas Patrias to reinforce their cultural links with each other and with Mexico. They included festivities that involved special music, songs, dances, native cuisine, costumes, and homage to folk heroes.
Traders Village along with Telemundo Houston TV 47 will continue that holiday tradition at the market by celebrating FIESTAS PATRIAS on Sunday, September 13th. The celebration will have a free live concert, dancing, and family fun.
