Mexican Independence Day 

When: Sat., Sept. 16, 10 a.m.-11 p.m. 2017
Price: free admission
Americans have wholeheartedly embraced Cinco de Mayo but have been less responsive toward Fiestas Patrias, or Mexican Independence Day. It doesn't make you any less American to celebrate another nation's independence; any time a country throws off the yoke of tyranny, Americans should celebrate. This year's festivities take place from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. today on Cherokee Street between Nebraska and Iowa avenues (www.festapatriasstl.com). It's the first year the organization Latinos en Axíon STL has presented and planned the event, and the group hopes to make a good impression. Food and drink will be available from neighborhood restaurants and businesses, and live entertainment includes music by Dukes, Grupo Paso Norteño and Valentia Musical. Admission is free.
