Memorial Art Gallery holds virtual celebration of Hispanic Heritage


ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — This year’s Hispanic Heritage Celebration that usually takes place at the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester will go virtual. 

Because of the pandemic, organizers say it had to be changed to keep families safe but at the same time able to celebrate. All throughout the week, there have been video clips posted on social media talking about the different Latin American countries along with historic tidbits.

The virtual celebration will include a spotlight on Puerto Rico and a cultural fashion show, which is a crowd favorite.  There will also be music and bands playing like the Mambo Kings.
