Events celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month in San Diego – The San Diego Union-Tribune

Hispanic Heritage Month, celebrated from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, is an annual commemoration of the histories, cultures and contributions of Hispanic communities in the country.
It was first celebrated in the United States in 1968 under President Lyndon Johnson as Hispanic Heritage Week, and later extended to a full month under President Ronald Reagan in 1988.
