Not to be confused with Cinco de Mayo, Fiesta de Independencia
is the most important patriotic holiday in Mexico, celebrating the day Mexico won independence from Spanish colonials in 1810. Now, over two centuries later, this day is celebrated with live mariachi bands, piñata-whacking, salsa contests and more at the Wells Fargo Center, which has continually supported the area’s Latino community (in the past two years alone, the venue has hosted shows by Jenny Rivera, Paquita and Los Tigres del Norte). Get your best dance shoes on and bring along your family and friends for a day of lively celebration on Saturday, Sept. 14, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. 1pm.
