National Hispanic Heritage Month 2020
National Hispanic Heritage Month is observed from September 15th to October 15th, and celebrates the cultures and contributions of American Citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. September 15th marks an important day in history as 5 Latin American countries gained their independence: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua.
This time frame also gives recognition to Mexico and Chile, as they celebrate their independence on September 16th and 18th. In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month, we’d like to recognize and thank our Hispanic associates, partners, guests, and customers who have contributed to Marcus and the American society.
