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.
