A Hispanic Heritage Celebration featuring music, dance and performances is slated for 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday in downtown Chandler.
The celebration is produced by Xico, one of the oldest ethnic nonprofit heritage organizations in the state, whose vision is to promote indigenous arts and culture through community arts programs.
Entertainment includes Mariachi music, Opendance and Flamenco del Sol Dancers, plus a performance of Por Amor by James Garcia, a romantic comedy about love, fame, greed and behind-the-scenes treachery in the world of touring theater.
Visitors are encouraged to bring blankets or chairs to sit on as they enjoy the performances on stage in A.J. Chandler Park, at Buffalo Street and Arizona Avenue.
