ORLANDO, FL (FNN News) – National Hispanic Heritage Month is observed from Sept. 15-Oct. 15 and honors the cultures and contributions of American citizens who have Latin ancestry.

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, community organizers kicked-off the 2nd annual Florida Hispanic Parade & Festival at the intersection of Livingston Street and Orange Avenue in downtown Orlando, Saturday, September 26, 2015 at 11:00am.

Honor guards from the Orlando Police Department, Fire Department and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office led the parade down Orange Avenue to the festival grounds at Orlando City Hall and Dr. Phillips Center. The parade featured marchers and floats.

The event offers the public an opportunity to access people from diverse cultural backgrounds. The parade is a cultural expression that allows the Hispanic community to walk together and showcase each others customs.
