Fiestas Patrias Event Being Held Wednesday at Midland's Ashley Furniture

In Texas, many Mexican-Americans celebrate Mexico’s Independence Day.

NewsWest9 along with our sister stations West Texas CW, La Ley and Telemundo 20 will celebrate with Ashley Furniture off of Loop 250.

The Mexican national holiday is referred to as Fiestas Patrias and called the Diez y Seis de Septiembre.

It commemorates Father Miguel Hidalgo who called for the end of Spanish rule in Mexico.

On September 16, 1825, the Republic of Mexico declared National Independence Day.

You’re invited to join us on Wednesday from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m.

We’ll have food, live music, piñatas, jumpers and plenty of prizes including a $500 gift card from Ashley Furniture every 30 minutes.
