The Mexican Heritage Society of Port Arthur presents the annual Mexican Fiesta in September to celebrate Mexican Independence from Spain. All cultures are invited to the colorful affair at the Robert A. “Bob” Bowers Civic Center that often includes a pageant, food booths and folkloric dancing. Bands plan for an evening dance.
Young dancers dress in authentic costumes representing states of Mexico. See the blog for 2014 events. This year, a car show and visit from Gator Country are new attractions set for Friday, Sept. 12. Other events are set for Saturday, Sept. 13.
